Weigh In - What's The Best Advice Your Mother Ever Gave You?

Weigh In - What's The Best Advice Your Mother Ever Gave You?



Sometime this year, somewhere, someone will be celebrating Mother’s Day, or the cultural equivalent of the ubiquitous celebration we mark here in the United States with breakfasts in bed and crayon scribbles of “I Love You.”











This year in America we will celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 8. In Great Britain, Mothering Day  was celebrated on April 6. Around the world, the dates when mothers are feted vary, from May 27 in Bolivia,  June 27 in Kenya, October 18 in Argentina, and December 22 in Indonesia.

Geography aside, mothers everywhere have a lot in common. Apart from showering love and affection on  their children, mothers also give them the benefit of their advice. A wise child once said, “Mothers only  offer advice on two occasions: when you want it and when you don't.”

My mother is no longer here to dispense advice when I need it, yet I believe that so much of what I know  was influenced by listening and watching my mother interact with others over a lifetime. She is still today  the little voice inside my head that chimes in, invited or not, whenever I am weighing in on a decision or  a course of action.

Children of any age, no one knows you better than your mom, so listen and learn while you can. Moms,  thanks for the advice . . . and keep it coming.

In our little corner of the world at Monmouth Mall, people were taking advantage of spring sales and  counting down the days until Mother’s Day. Here’s what they had to say about the best advice their  mothers ever gave them.



 

Never talk to strangers and always keep a roof over your head.

-John Guillett


To always be humble. My mother was always humble and very sweet.

-Gabriela Villata


Listen to your mother and work hard.

-Robert Olsen




She’s still giving me advice! Watch who your friends are.

-Eileen Jacome

Marry a woman who can take care of you.

-Angelo Bellomo



God rest my mother’s soul. Do what your heart tells you to do. But who listens to good advice?

-Mr. Gee


She never really gave me that much advice but never talk to strangers; I remember that – that’s a definite!

-Edna Schoemberg


Don’t even know if I’ve ever gotten advice from my mother except be yourself.

-Colby Bartis

My Mother always told me to wear clean underwear. I guess she didn’t want me to get into an accident and have the EMTs see dirty underpants...yeah because that’s what they are looking for!

-Brian Underwoods





Make sure you get a good education and you can do anything you want in life.

-Telma Cronin




Use spell check on your college application. She also taught us how to use tools, WD-40. She was a real hands-on mom.

-Barbara Lovell Napoli




Be yourself.

-Syma Cohen



Gianna – Work hard and your dreams will come true. Kate – Always believe in what you want to be. Caroline  – Always listen to your mother!

-Caroline, Gianna, and Kate Lavallee



Her advice really was more practical than just telling us things. She taught us how to drive a stick. She was  always the mother our boyfriends would want to talk to.

-Karen Lovell



Work it!

-Jen Kirschner

Think before you speak.

-Jeremy Hardy




Put your pants on one leg at a time – always her advice when I have too much to do!

-Karyn Dutch



Stay single!

-Drew Wolf





Never invite a guy out on a date first. In my life I have done this only once. My mother was right.

-Ksenia Porfiryeva



Don’t drink and drive.

-Tony Sergi



Always do unto others as you would want them to do unto you.

-Fabrini Cronin



Do your homework every night. Except I get Fridays off from homework.

-Olivia Bellomo



Don’t worry, everything always works out. And she’s right!

-Laura Howe



Finish school and go to college. Now I’m working on my masters.

-Vanessa Cintron
