Without rules and boundaries, we don’t know what’s fair or unfair. We all have some innate sense of right and wrong. But without guidelines from our parents, teachers, and community, that sense of what’s right won’t turn into the correct actions.
Rules help to protect the rights of ourselves and others. When we respect the rules, it really means we’re respecting the rights of other people. If we don’t respect their rights, how can we expect them to respect our rights?
