Keep your elbows off the table, say thank you, don't talk back and put your dishes in the sink. Parents ingrain these simple things in your head at an early age and, hopefully, they stick.
But parents can also give some great, and sometimes bad, advice.
My dad always told me that anyone with a tattoo probably had some kind of problem and you should probably not trust them. I now have a tattoo and have learned that some of the most trustworthy people I've ever come across have tattoos.
My mom was a little more realistic. She always wanted me to try hard, keep quiet and have fun. I think I've done quite well with two out of these three—I just can't keep myself quiet when I feel something needs to be said.
So, in recognition of Mothers Day, we're Just Askin': what was the best, and worst, advice your parents ever gave you?
