Our parent/guardians are always implying a variety of house rules as we grow up. Some parents believe that as kids grow up, it’s beneficial and necessary to have rules between the parent/guardians and the kids.
For example, guardians and kids have to respect each others thoughts and the kids have to help their guardians in the house. Mr. Palacios, an English teacher, states that having the rules is helpful because, “it stays in line with the mission of a parent.” The rules he has between his daughter and him are to be impeccable with their word, try not to make assumptions, don’t take things personally, do your best, so they base off of those four agreements. An example he gives is that if his daughter makes a mess, then he says you need to clean up your mess. She would ask why and he explains.
Some people think it’s necessary to imply rules on their kids when there is a situation. Mrs. Boxeth states “...You kind of have to think about how you as a parent want to run your house…” Rules are easy to use to keep your house in order. Some rules that can keep the house in order are respect to one another, who has to do what in the house, and always communicate between each other. Coach believes the rules should promote something that everyone agres on so it’s fair to both side, the parents and kids.
Having rules at home can help kids prepare in the future. As Morelia Gonzalez says, “ I can learn a whole lot of new things.. I’m a obviously going to need to know how to wash dishes or even cook food for myself.” They are help for them in the future to when they have to go to college, live alone in there house, or to their own family. Also there is always a reason wants to imply a rule on you like for example if your guardians put a curfew for you to be home no later than 9 probably could be because they want you to be safe and not out late at night.
Rules are very useful and good to have at home because the world is run by them. Rules are helpful to keep your house in order. So, follow those rules!
