Like the majority of children, I was raised mostly by my mother.
She operated a regime best described as "firm but fair" and when I look back, my memories are full of happiness set within strict moral limits.
In our house she made sure that I adhered to three rules without deviation (in order of increasing importance):
Respect your Mother and Father.
Always treat others as you would wish them to treat you.
Be out of the office until Thusday 4th July 2013.
I never really understood the last one, but rule number one kind of precluded me from questioning it.
If you need anything while I'm away you can contact my work mothers, Lindsay and Lou.
