An insightful look into the rules parents make up for their children and the possible ways of keeping a child inline.

Establishing a clearly defined set of house rules makes it easier for your children to align their behavior with your expectations. It also makes it easier to use consistant discipline strategies.

The first step for creating rules is to not create too many rules.

It's difficult for children with their underdeveloped brains to formalize a list of rules. Rather establish a series of guidelines that are vage and open ended.

Like be kind,

and always use good judgement.

making rules that are vauge and open ended leave you the respondsable parent unlimited flexability in exacting weird punishments on your children at any time randomly.

Use positive langage:

Instead of "Don't call one another names," try "Be kind to one another."
Instead of "Don't mess with other people's stuff," try "Respect others' belongings."
Instead of "Don't run in the house," try "Use walking feet indoors."
Let your kids help write the rules:

Giving the kids a chance to participate in writing a list of rules will increase their sense of ownership and their willingness to follow the rules. Also, you get the added bonus of fucking with their little heads when you start beating them for the rules they invented....

here is a sample of rules that will improve you household bunches.

Family Rules:

Treat one another as you'd like to be treated.
Use an "indoor voice" when we're inside.
Use "walking feet" in the house.
Use your manners.
Do your best.
Final summation: The rules I had growing up were unspoken and I was never disciplined as a child either, but i think that had more to do with being raised by single mother then being a good kid... Ultimately keen thrust for knowledge, weak sense of self preservation and the desire to beloved made me who i am today. Creating vague family rules will not fix your problem child, but putting them up for adoption will or was that unconditional love.. hmm either giving them up for adoption or unconditional love i don't know.

What is the gradualreport?

The gradualreport is a human experiment in comedy focusing on; human interactions, human phobias, animal news, giant world events, and scientific non-achievement. These things are distilled through the mind of a weird, smart, eccentric young man named Danny Grozdich and funny is the result.

Who is Danny Grozdich?

Danny is your best friend on the Internet. I must repeat, "Danny is your best friend on the Internet." And though you may never meet Danny. He wants you to know that he loves you.

Final Summation:

Danny made these videos to teach you, and make you happy, and help you laugh at the funny side of life, because, in a world of moral ambiguity, laughter, though fleeting, is the only worthwhile certainty to pursue.

Here are a few more ways to share in Danny's Internet immortality...
