What is the greatest lesson you learned from your parents and how was the lesson passed on to you?
Parents have always been wonderful parents to their kids maybe the lessons they pass on to their kids will depend on individual parent and their way of thinking. They worked hard to provide a stable foundation for their children’s life and future.
They taught invaluable life lessons about work, marriage, parenting, relationships, and life. And anytime they celebrate their birthday, Children need to use such public forums to give them the praise they deserve and to share some of the life lessons they learned in life from their parents.
Some parent taught their children to learn how to achieve their goals with what resources had available, or could reasonably acquire. Never, ever should kids simply throw up their hands because they didn’t have the perfect, high-quality tools to do something. they should learn how to make things happen even if they had to use chewing gum and chicken wire. You can’t always succeed in things, but parents teach kids never to give up because life is not perfect, or easy.
Example in school:
There was a new girl in school and the teacher put her on the desk in front of me. She was smart and pretty, but she wavered between snobby and nice, depending on her mood. I wanted to be her friend, but all she seemed to want from me was a pencil, or paper now and then when she was out or to cut in front of me in the lunch line on pizza day.
Mama always taught us: “To have a friend, you have to be a friend.” I tried being a friend to her and I finally gave up. Instead, I settled on just being nice. It was the first time I could ever remember someone not liking me and it made me feel invisible
When I brought it up with Mama, she said, “Honey, some people aren’t going to like you. It won’t matter what you do or say, or how nice or smart you are. It’s a fact of life and something you will just have to accept.
It’s a hard lesson, I know, and I’m sorry you were hurt. The important thing is, you’re going to find a lot of people who do want to be your friend. You don’t have to change a thing, just be you.
