Things My Parents Were Right About

When you’re living at home, you think you know everything. You think you can do no wrong and your parents are only trying to stifle your fun.

And then you have kids of your own and you find yourself telling your kids the same things you were told. You catch yourself protecting your kids from the same things you couldn’t wait to do.

And you take a step back and realize – maybe my parents knew some things I didn’t. Maybe – just maybe – they were right. That’s not the easiest thing to say, but it’s true.

Here are just a few of the things my parents were right about:

  • Having a snack will spoil your dinner

  • Beach Music

  • College

  • Make an effort to make others smile

  • Using manners

  • The value of friends

  • Clemson

  • Keeping chapstick handy

  • Cherry Dr. Pepper (the regular kind with the syrup added)

  • Turning the TV off to read a book

  • Always believing in Santa Claus (he still comes because we still believe)

  • Have fun

  • Working for your money

  • Earning your keep
