One thing that always stuck with me after watching Dexter is the idea of a code. Dexter's father, noticing his son's homicidal tendencies and thirst for blood, created a code for him to live by.
While my children are not Dexter, this idea really resonated with me. What is the code I want to leave my children with? What are the non-negotiable's?
Over the past couple of years, I have been refining the code depending on the kids' weaknesses.
- respect your mother
- Character is king
- tell the truth
- no TV
