1.listening
2.polite
3.respect(he learnt what this meand earlier on today and likes it!?)
4.doing as told
5.talk instead of whinge
6.no violence
7.no means no

and both were very clear its for all of us-mummy,daddy and all 3 dc.grinand we agreed that there will be one warning with an explaination of what rule is broken and that its not exceptable,then if carries on they said a thinking circle(well they said naughty circle i said thinking-no idea why circle?from school maybe).

maybe my dc have turned into jo frost?

Yes, it's the way Jo Frost pronounces "acceptable". Sorry, thought that was a bit of an in-joke round here!!
