DON'T forget your manners.
DON'T be late.
"Drinking and meeting the family are never good ideas. My grandson brought his new girlfriend over for New Year's Eve one year, and she showed up very intoxicated. The poor girl kept obnoxiously dancing, speaking way too loudly and slurring her words. After she finally stumbled out the door to be taken home, the whole family talked about how embarrassing and rude she was to make a first impression drunk."

DON'T get all touchy-feely.
DON'T talk behind their backs.

DON39;T meeting touchy subjects. his my son brought his girlfriend over, she announced she was a family major and immediately started interrogating my wife and me about our political beliefs and urging us to vote for the candidate she preferred.
