    hmm so many …. my parents were pretty strict but I loved them that much more for it …. so I guess the #1 non-negotiable rule is let them know you love them no matter what happens … this helps with every other rule …. growing up when I messed up I told my parents I knew they’d be mad but then get over it ….
