I don’t even think I can share on the website the best advice my mother gave. It was a rhyme and about being dummy and a tummy, well, guess I shared. There are so many things I learned from my mother and with Mother’s Day coming up we asked the Click of 6 to share their stories.

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What is the best piece of advice your mom ever gave you?

  • If at first you don’t succeed, do it how your mother told you!
  • mine goes along with Steve’s. “Sometimes kids just puke.” It happens. Move on and don’t dwell on it.
  • "haste makes waste" as an artist this has been something I remember and think about often.
  • Never go to bed angry.
  • It's not the size of your wand, it's the magic that's within
  • Mom's advice "you can't look forward if you're always looking in the rearview mirror" I miss my mom
  • Keep your money separate! As long as the bills are paid, then you don't have to explain why you bought something because it was YOUR money, not "our" money..
  • My mom told me not to be afraid of “balloon animals” because “it felt so good.” That is a fact and it has bothered me my entire life....I mean no one wants to hear their mom say that. GROSS. But, she was right.
  • Don’t walk down dark alleys.
  • If a man ever tells you that you can’t make it without him...you tell him,”Honey, I made it before you and I’ll make it when you’re gone
  • She used to tell me that if he is gonna sit across from her at the table...make sure he is something nice to look at...I didn’t listen...I loved people because of their heart. Never dated a cover model and never would on account of their looks...I may have disappointed her a few times.
  • You can love a rich man as easy as a poor one. I didn't listen
  • To follow Jesus and to never be a victim.
  • Nothing good came from my mom, but always soak your dishes if you can't wash right away.
  • Always do your best and treat people how you wish to be treated. Yes I do both
  • How to be self-sufficient
  • When you get married make sure your name is on the checking account too.
  • To learn how to type and to take computer classes when I was in high school.
  • The grass isn't always greener on the other side.
  • Weed the garden after a good rain. Weeds are easier to pull in the softened ground.
  • Do unto others as you'd have done to you
  • Don't let the bastards get you down
  • Hit ‘Em first and hit ‘Em hard...that was my grandma tho not my mom.
  • Don’t ever depend on a man to support you!
  • It's just as easy to marry rich as it is poor!😂 I didn't listen. 😂
  • Everything in moderation.
  • If you wait to have money before you start a family you’ll never have a family lol and she always says pray about everything God is listening.
  • The best advice my mom ever gave me was to go to college get a degree and never depend on a man financially. I did not listen and got married at 22. After 25 years of marriage I had my wedding anniversary and my divorce finalized in the same week. For the first time in my 47 years of life I am able to support myself and will never depend on anyone else but me! Feels amazing #freedom
  • Never marry a man who is divorced with kids.
  • my mom always used to say 'Thomas, if you're going to do something, do it well, even if it's just wiping your ass..' I tell my son this on the regular....this is the 1st Mother's Day without her, lost her in March....miss her daily....
  • Weird is good. Taught me to fully embrace my weird and I'm so much happier not trying to be cool
  • Mom advice: never quit your job until you have another!!! With very few exceptions!
  • Kill them with kindness. Think before you act.
  • Pick your battles.
  • When I was 13 and being bullied about my weight and looks (I was very tomboyish). My Mom stood me in front of a full length mirror and said “listen beautiful girl, do you like what you see ?). I said I guess. And she said “then it does not matter what anyone says or thinks”
  • Follow your dreams. Don't ever let someone steal your joy.
  • Don’t come looking for me unless one of you is dead or bleeding
  • Don't sweat the small stuff. It's all small stuff.
  • I was raised by my Dad after my Mom left and my Dad’s best advice was “Don’t be anything like your Mom.” LoL
  • She told me to make sure I enjoy vacations when you are able to go instead of waiting till you retire. So true
  • If it has tires or testicles it's bound to give you trouble.
