This includes the values and rules that are important to you and your family. For example, if one of your values is education, you would ALWAYS say NO to a friend who was trying to get you to skip class or cheat on an assignment. Some of these values and rules also keep you safe. (An example of this would be no underage drinking or no missing curfew.) 2 minutes
