The newest house rule

We seem to have more and more house rules that we more or less follow.  OK, they are not "rules" as much as they are sayings that the Triplets hear and or say on command and on a regular basis.  The most recent was a gift from a Mother of three that I ran into a while back.

We were discussing the challenges of controlling/disciplining three (or more) children.  She said that she started handing out the punishment to all three if they did not get along.  So now if two or all three of the Triplets can't agree on something or are fussing about something I get involved.  Guess what, if I get involved who's happy?  NO ONE! :)

If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self.

If we don't discipline ourselves, the world will do it for us.
