What are your house rules?

In light of recent behavioral issues in our house, we are revamping and writing down our house rules. I want to be thorough without being overbearing and causing a revolt. What are your house rules? What would you include if you had kids who back talked, left trash and belongings all over the house, and threw teenage temper tantrums when told no or asked to do something? How would you cover adult behavior in your rules? Dh and I have not been the best examples to our kids lately and want them to know that while we are setting down new rules for them, we need to get our act together too. What would the consequences be for adults breaking the rules?

Well, to be honest with you, we struggle with the teenagers having attitude and being slobs and not doing chores.

Last year DH and I explained that in order for them to have the life they do, there had to be more cooperation or we could not function.

I went to a workshop several years ago about this.
