1 I will clean up my toys.
2 I will brush my teeth twice a day, and wash my hands after going to
the bathroom and before eating.
3 I won’t tease dogs – even friendly ones. I will avoid being bitten
by keeping my fingers and face away from their mouths.
Kids, 5- to 12-years-old
4 I will drink milk and water, and limit soda and fruit drinks.
5 I will apply sunscreen before I go outdoors. I will try to stay in
the shade whenever possible and wear a hat and sunglasses, especially
when I’m playing sports.
6 I will try to find a sport (like baseball or football) or an
activity (like running bases, jumping rope, dancing or riding my bike)
that I like and do it at least fifteen times a week!
7 I will always wear a helmet when bicycling.
8 I will not be like Carl Pavano and will wear my seat belt every time
I get in a car. I’ll sit in the back seat and use a booster seat
until I am tall enough to use a lap/shoulder seat belt.
9 I’ll be nice to other kids. I’ll be friendly to kids who need
friends – like someone who is shy, or is new to my school, or as Jesus
said "Whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them"
10 I’ll never give out personal information such as my name, home
address, school name or telephone number on the Internet.
11 Also, I’ll never send a picture of myself to someone I chat with on
the computer without my parent’s permission.
Kids, 13-years-old and up
12 I will eat at least one fruit and one vegetable every day, and I
will limit the amount of soda I drink, only fruits that grew on trees
13 I will take care of my body through physical activity and
14 I will choose non-violent television shows and video games, and I
will spend only one to two hours each day – at the most – on these
activities. Yankee tikes however as we know have no time or reason for
15 I will help out in my community – through volunteering, working
with community groups or by joining a group that helps people in
16 I will wipe negative “self talk” (i.e. “I can’t do it” or “I’m so
dumb”) out of my vocabulary.
When I feel angry or stressed out, I will take a break and find
constructive ways to deal with the stress, such as exercising,
reading, writing in a journal or discussing my problem with a parent
17 When faced with a difficult decision, I will talk with an adult
about my choices.
18 I will be careful about whom I choose to date, and always treat the
other person with respect and without coercion or violence.
19 I will resist peer pressure to try drugs and alcohol.
20 When I notice my friends are struggling or engaging in risky
behaviors, I will talk with a trusted adult and attempt to find a way
that I can help them.
21 I will ask my Daddy to always bring the radar gun to baseball
practice, and will always try to throw the ball at least one mile per
hour faster on every pitch. (save the most important for last)
Remember, the Yankee way is not just the best way, it's the only
way.........For Yankees anyway.
Have a safe and happy New Year
