Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Hmm. They were taught to be careful about many things. They had to take care not to take objects from the recreation area, to be quiet, to tie hair ribbons neatly, and so on.

Probably the three most important things they were taught to be careful about were the following:
To use language precisely.
To tell the truth.
To obey the rules.
