    I have to say that my dad used to always say to me that “if you’re going to do a job, you may as well do it right the first time.” I can’t think of any bad advice.

    Best: So many here! Simple yet timeless . . . like my mom’s “if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all” or my dad’s “hurt me once, shame on you; hurt me twice, shame on me.” I am sure there are several shinier gems, but they don’t want to come to my mind right now.

    Worst: My mom’s advice: you’ll always be in debt, so just accept it!

    The WORST sticks out for vividly that I can not remember a “best”.

    On my 13th birthday my father sat me down for “the talk,” I cringe when I think about it, even now.

    It went something like this;

    Father: Son I want to tell you about sex. If you ever have the chance to get a girl you better get her. You may be able to get that same girl later but that’s just one more piece you could have gotten. Any questins?”

    Son: Ummmmm, no sir.

      Woops! That’s even worse than what one of my classmates told me. He was proud of his dad’s wisdom. “Don’t have sex with someone you might want to marry.” Everyone else was fair game. Eeeew.

    A parent or my parent…I’ll go with A parent! Jason is a parent and he tells me…work smarter not harder. Worst advice? IDK…I’ll think about that one!

    Hmm this is a hard question!
    Best advice was from my mom: Sometimes you just have to bite your tongue and play nice!

    Worst advice was from my dad: Don’t worry about going to college, just find a guy with money to marry!

    I didn’t get any advice that sticks out from either of my parents. We just didn’t talk like that.

    The best advice from my mom.She once said a phrase that I carry with me threw my life now.Concerning certain people who have hurt and betrayed me like no one should.Here it is “You cant hate people.But you dont have to like them,or put up with the way they treat you.You can choose to not be around them ”
    And from my Dad he said to me as a child “Dont talk to strangers” That phrase came in handy with my last ex.He was a toatal ass.So I wrote a note and ended it with, “My DAD always told me not to talk to strangers.And to me you are a stranger.So when I see you,I dont know you: 🙂
