This is the sign above one of our children’s beds.
“If you make a mess – clean it up.
If you take something – put it back.
If you borrow – give it back.
If you use it – take care of it.
If you promise – do it.
If you open something – close it again.
If you break something – fix it.
If you can’t fix it – ask for help.
If you switch it on – switch it off again.
If something belongs to someone else – leave it alone.
If it’s not your business – don’t interfere and – finally –
IF YOU DON’T HAVE SOMETHING GOOD TO SAY ABOUT SOMEONE
DON’T SAY ANYTHING!”
