Dumb advice from our parents...

1. "You can be anything you want to be" -- should have been "you can be anything you are willing to work hard enough to become." 

2. "Alway clean your plate" I am by no means a fan of wasting food... the saying should go "Don't take more food than you need, but if you do don't stuff yourself cause that's unhealthy" --its not quite as catchy... I know.


3. "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all" - There's a time and a place to be blunt and honest - should have been "If you are gonna say something that may hurt feelings, make sure you know it's worth the repercussions"


4. "Don't become obsessed with money" - actually a great saying, just needs "but worry about it a reasonable amount and be smart with it" added to it.

5. "Fighting is never the answer" - just not true... every parent should just make their kid listen to this song and tell them to live by the words in it.




Really though if your old enough to remember that song... your old enough to have a little common sense right?

You guys got anymore?
