If something like this already exists then go ahead and close. I didn't see anything...well a locked topic had the same/similar title, but is different from what I'm asking. What I'm asking involves more of the advice our moms have given us,the life lessons they have taught, or those weird little home remedies you never thought worked, but do. At the time you thought that mom was crazy, but now looking back you realize she was right.

So what were some things your mom told you, taught you, etc. and you thought she was just being mom, but now looking back you see she was right?

For example: It's not good for you to eat so fast, so slow down.

I thought this little topic would be fun and a way for us to say "You were right mom." without having to admit it to her.

"Question everything."

"Look it up."

Those two things ended up being the best advice she has given me, but now I frequently have to hear "You are too smart for your own good" while they try to push me into relationships or dead-end jobs.

Money, money, money... I want some long term financial security, not a quick-fix.

"just get over it" or "deal with it yourself"

sounds harsh but it's helped me a lot otherwise i'd be a sobbing emotional wreck all the time and depend on other people for everything
