#17 If you were only allowed to give your children one piece of advice, what would that be?
Our daughter is 24, a college graduate and a new business owner. Not an owner of a new business but a new owner of an existing, successful business. She is in the process of buying her first home, that she is currently living in, so there are a lot of pieces of advice that we have given her.
When she was in high school her Dad used to tell her, don't try to pull anything over our heads because if you think of something stupid to do, chances are.....we already invented it. That always made me chuckle when he said that because I am sure that he probably did think of anything and everything when he was growing up.
We have always tried to be there to support and give good advice to our daughter through everything she has been through so far in life and I think that we have done a pretty darn good job so far. We want her to be a step above us because you know how parents are, they always want more for their children then they had themselves. Not that we don't have nice things but, you know what I mean. We have tried to teach her that monetary things are not as important as family is.
I guess that if I were only allowed to give her one piece of advice, I guess that would have to be..........When you believe in something, stand your ground and voice your opinion.
