I am an expert and I'll be here for you.
Rule No. 1:
You always have to clean the toilets. It's a guy thing.
"So I missed by 6". I was close."
Rule No. 2:
And this is so important.
Be firm and protective. Tell them "I don't like having to do this but I am doing it because I love you." Being overprotective is not such a bad thing if you explain to them why you are doing it.
Rule No. 3:
Always tell them that you love them. Never, ever let that be in doubt. It's corny but it is important.
Rule No 4:
Never doubt there ability to understand.
There are many more rules to follow. But hell, 7 and 11. They are pretty much cast in stone by now. Doesn't matter. If you need advice just ask. The teenage years are a blast.
