    Growing up, what is the most important, practical piece of advice your parents (or any adult relative, for that matter) passed onto you about life that you hold dear to this very day? And given the changing times... would it be the most important piece YOU would pass on to your kids now? If not, what would it be?

    Hi CarrieMonet...it's not so much what my parents said or advice given in my case, it was what they did or showed that had the most profound life lessons for me. And yes, I hope that I have passed the same or similar life images to my children.

    My father once told me to "never do anything half-@$$ed" and I tend to apply it to everything I do. I'm an all or nothing type of person. My mother used to tell me to always do my best. I was a horrible math student in school and my mom told me that if I made an F and I got it doing my best, then she would still be proud of that F. That meant a lot to me and still does.

    I would pass both of those messages to my kids if I had some.

    My dad taught me street smarts regarding conflict and people trying to take me out....he also taught me to do what I want to or have to and not give a [email protected] what other people say about me and my choice to do it. My mom taught me never to be put down by or bow down to anyone and to go for what I want and stand up for myself....it wasnt so much sitting me down and talking as it was getting on my case when ever she noticed I did not do such things.

    Never trade your mother for a woman, you only have one.

    Jack Off before you beg a woman for sex, when doing so you break the fantasy in her mind that she can control you with her body.

    Do not create situations that you cannot handle.
