5. We speak quietly and respectfully with one another.
6. We do not hurt one another with unkind words or deeds.
7. When someone needs correction, we correct him in love.
8. When someone is sorry, we forgive him.
9. When someone is sad, we comfort him.
10. When someone is happy, we rejoice with him.
11. When we have something nice to share, we share it.
12. When we have work to do, we do it without complaining.

He has this in a WONDERFUL coloring book that his young homeschool son illustrated. There was a companion for teaching the rules. We bought it years ago at a conference and made it the center of our house rules. Works beautifully.
