Rule #1 – Respect
I will show respect to the Captain at all times. I will listen for his voice. I will stop what I am doing (if possible) and give his words top priority. I will not allow the children to interrupt us. I will not shut down or shut him out when I am upset. I will not avoid discussions that are difficult. I will be totally honest, and not tell half-truths or try to divert the conversation. I will not use tending to the children to get out of a difficult conversation.
I will accept his authority and leadership in all things concerning ttwd. I will not push or try to manipulate things into happening when I want them too. I will accept his decisions on when/if I am to be spanked and/or punished in any way.
I will use a respectful tone when I am talking to him. I will not demean or criticize him. I will not try to change what he says to get him to do things my way. I am allowed to respectfully disagree with him and state my side. I will accept his word as final on any/all situations.
I will obey his commands. I will meet his expectations. If I fail, I will confess to him and willingly accept any consequence he deems necessary.
