It's less about rules and more about making a statement - a definition of who you are as a family and where you are going.
A family mission statement is a helpful reminder, for both young and old members, of what family means to you all - the values you hold dear and the characteristics you want to celebrate.
Ask your children what family means to them, and for the words they would use to describe your 'team'. If you want to present "family rules", keep them simple so kids understand them in relation to harmonious family life.
Display your family mission statement with pride and encourage all who read it.
