Precocious Wiki

Rule #4

Because of the rather volatile nature of most of the kids in Precocious, their parents have drafted a list of rules which are occasionally referenced in the comics. In comic 135 of Copper Road, the title of these rules is given as "25 Rules for Smarty Kids". Below is table of all known rules in this list.
