What rules should be set in order to keep kids in line? Aside from the obvious: stay seated, and have fun, what else should I set as a rule?

Raising their hand, clapping (make it into a fun rule), keep quiet (well sort of, only when you want them to be).

Get Chris Capehart's DVD "Kidden Around" He lays out the rules very nicely. One of his rules is to make noise!! He tells the kids to shout out answers to wuestions. In his Lotta Bowl routine the kids yell "stop" to get him to stop pouring water and he says "LOUDER!" They are screaming it each time he runs out of water.

I encourage the kids to yell and really make noise if they enjoy the show. They also have to be quiet when I am talking but when I stop talking they YELL and laugh tgheir a$$es off.

That DVD will teach you a LOT

Thanks a lot paddy. I really appreciate the help you have given me, mostly indirectly, but I really respect you as a magician and as a performer.

Dan Harlan also has a nice DVD on kid's magic. It's worth looking into (I apologize for not knowing the name off hand, but a quick search will get it for you). He goes over some very useful tips. Also, getting all the information that you can will help. So it would be worth looking into Dan Harlan's DVD as well as Chris Capehart's DVD.
