What is the one piece of advice your parents gave you that you passed down to your children? I'll go first. My mother used to always tell me that I needed to have a job skill and a means to support myself. She said that I needed to be able to support myself no matter how good of a job my future husband might have. I'm very glad that I listened to her because my dh was laid off twice while our kids were being raised, and I became the breadwinner for several months each time. Plus, my income helped pay for our girls' weddings and college educations. I passed this same advice along to our daughters, and I'm so glad that I did. They took my advice, have careers and all of that. Next . . .
My father told me that if something is worth doing, it is worth doing right. To this day, I have trouble working for or staying with organizations/businesses that are not conducting business ethically or right.
Here's one that my Dad gave me when I was a teenager. But it is true now more than ever. I definitely passed it down to my kids. "Never put anything in writing that you don't want the world to see. Always assume that anyone and everyone will read it." Prophetic words since he told me this long before social media and cells were around.
