Don’t Tell Me No Lies and Keep Your Hands to Yourself

In light of Chris Brown’s alleged assault on a fan and his 2009 assault on Rihanna, I became interested in other “golden rules.” According to the “12 Golden Rules for Children: 1880s” from the Canton Historical Society, there are 12 rules children should abide by. Here they are as told by The Real Housewives.

1. Shut every door after you without slamming it.

3. Never call to persons upstairs or in the next room; if you wish to speak to them, go to them.
