1) Keep your mouth shut, no matter what. No family secrets are reveled; never snitch on a friend or family member even if you must take the fall.
2) Keep your word. Do what you say you will, do not cheat a friend or family member.
3) Ball 100%... Give everything you got. Never quit on yourself or your family.
4) Own your kids; take care of them no matter what obstacles stand in the way. Teach them the code.
