20 Things You Must Teach Your Children Before They Grow Up by dloy(m): 2:14am On Aug 17, 2013
1. Play a sport.
It will teach you how to win honorably, lose gracefully, respect authority, work with others,manage your time and stay out of trouble. And maybe even throw or
catch.

2. It is better to be kind than to be right.

3. Save money when you're young because you're going to need it someday.

4. Your talent with the right attitude will take you anywhere

5. Pray and be a spiritual leader.

6. Don't ever be a bully and don't ever start a fight, but if some clocks you, please defend yourself.

7. There's nothing like making hay while the sun shines. Do what you have to do at the right time!

8. Your knowledge and education is
something that nobody can take away from you.

9. Treat your partner kindly .Forever is a long time to live alone and it's even longer to live with somebody who hates your guts.

10. Take pride in your appearance.

11. Be strong and tender at the same time.

12. Mutual respect is the key to a good relationship.

13. "Yes ma'am" and "yes sir" still go a long way to us.

14. The reason that they're called "private parts" is because they're "private". Please do not show them in public.

15. Peer pressure is a scary thing. Be a good leader and others will follow.

16. You still have a lot to learn from life,so never treat everyone same

17. You will set the tone for the intimate relationship, so don't take something away from her that you can't give back.

18. A sense of humor goes a long way in the healing process.

19. Please choose your spouse wisely. My daughter-in-law will be the gatekeeper for me spending time with you and my grandchildren.

20. Remember to call your mother and father because I might be missing you.

I found this interesting...kindly add any other tips. Thanks

naijababe: No 2 and 4 is all anyone needs.

I was brought up to be kind than be right but paid a very big price for it especially with Nigerians,however,no 4 has kept me going....Sometimes i just feel people are not worth the kindness you show them, you have to establish your right.

21. No one is indispensable, Absolutely no one! So use every opportunity you have got to treat people right cos u never know, you might be at their mercy sometime and depending on how you treated them, they'll make the decision to either make or mar you...
