1) Any rule regarding school
2) Walk, don't run in the halls
3) Stopping at stop signs at 3 in the morning/traffic lights with no one around for miles
4) Children are meant to be seen and no heard
5) Sleep at night

Wagging must be an English/Australian term. It just means skipping school... (which I've done many times, by the way :D).

I'm all for the 5 second rule... I have the 5 second rule, as well as the 3 second rule. This is where you sneeze, and then wait for 3 seconds for somebody to say "bless you"/ "gazuntite"/ "salud"/ what have you, and if they don't, you say "excuse me"... I hate it when people say "excuse me" without giving anybody the chance to say "bless you" or whatever... *GRRR*

I meant that the 5 second rule should be broken in the sense that you can wait longer. For example, someone drops a square of Hershey's milk chocolate on a floor that is not visibly dirty. even if it was there for 7 seconds, I'd still pick it up and eat it. :)

-Don't talk to strangers
(how are we supposed to make new friends if we never talk to strangers????)
-No talking (wherever - the library ... class)
-No reading in the car/bus

all I can think of at the moment. But I object to breaking the "no jumping on the bed" rule. No kids that I babysit are allowed to do that. Once, when he was about 4, my little brother was jumping on the bed and bit the end of his tongue almost off. Blooooooood everywhere, him screaming (the last inch of his tongue was still attached, but only by 1/4-inch piece of skin) eeewwwww - not something I ever want to see again! eeew eeew eeew gross! Ick!

I was babysitting by this family with 4 kids once. At bedtime, the 2 youngest started jumping on the bed. One slipped, or sat down or something, but the next thing I know, he's screaming. He had smashed his chin on the bar across the bedposts. He didn't need stiches or anything, but since then I don't let kids jump on the bed. Too many things can (and usually will) happen. With older kids, I just tell them this story and let them decide for themself, but I can't bring myself to leave the room if they decide to jump; I fell like I should be there to catch them if they fall or something.

I mean, c'mon, everybody does it, but nobody wants to admit it. It's the hardest rule to follow.
