Pick Your Battles

Not Worth the Trouble:
Socks that match the rest of your outfit
Running in the halls at school
Tasting new foods
Watching too much TV
Meticulous hand-washing
Biting your fingernails
Playing video games


You'll Never Get Away With:
Interrupting when someone else is talking
Hitting
Eating dessert if you didn’t have most of your dinner
Not saying thank you when something is handed to you/done for you
Demanding something rather than asking for it
Picking your nose
Saying no to/flat-out ignoring a parent's request

I think I have to disagree with the too much TV and video games ones.

These are just my personal "not worth the trouble" items. I imagine there are parents out there who have completely opposite lists.

I'm sure every parent has their own custom made list for this one. To each his own.

One question though. For those of us who don't have self cleansing noses...what are we supposed to do? Seriously. :)

I don't support nose picking in public or anything, It's a dirty job, but someones got to do it. Preferably the nose owner. With a tissue, of course.
