About Set Rules
Rules give meaning to a game and also govern the way it is played. In a similar fashion, we need rules at every step of our life to govern the way we behave and react in any situation.
What are set rules? Every family has its own set of unique rules which must be adhered to, by each member of the family. Put very simply, these rules could range from the basic good etiquette and table manners to a stand on more complicated issues like how much television to watch, how late to stay up, and where to go when unaccompanied by parents. Not only do rules give us a sense of security, but they also provide order and peace for the family.
Children might find these rules stifling at times. However, it is important to remember that these rules teach us proper behaviour and instill life-long character traits. These include setting healthy boundaries, learning to take decisions and honing the skills needed to grow into mature and confident individuals.
Just like a game of Monopoly would be no fun without its rules, growing up would be meaningless in a life without set rules.
