It's much easier to stay out of trouble than to get out of it. Don't do less than you can really do. Do parents really know what's best? If you were to ask most children, they would probably say no. And we don't blame them, it can be easy to feel that way when you're just a child and adults seem like irrational bosses with demands that don't make sense.
But guess what? The people who raised you were wiser than you thought. Here are 17 wisdom lessons you heard when you were a kid that were actually valuable life lessons from your parents. In other words, don't give up on something just because you're not immediately good at it. Great things don't happen without a lot of blood, sweat and tears.
Or, as some parents like to say, a little effort. Do you know who agreed with them? One of the most famous scientists of all time, Albert Einstein. Even he realized that no one is born a genius. It's not that I'm that smart, he once said.
The thing is that I stay with problems longer. That's something to remember at any age. It is a reaction to the current situation. Maybe your parents told you some of these, but they forgot to tell you other life lessons.
My parents were very quiet about their personal lives, so they focused most of their college advice on grades and attendance. Of course, today you are an adult and you realize that your parents were absolutely right to give you this advice. Now that a few years have passed since your childhood and now (well, more than a few years), you can proudly say that you follow your parents' advice on a daily basis. Even when you're in your 20s and 30s, you still need to be given this advice, and you really feel better when your parents give you this advice.
But that's how it always seems to be, right? This is the best advice your parents gave you that you wish you had heard.
