    What is the best advice you would give your children  before they left home ?

    If you could give your children one piece of advice to take with them  as they left home what would it be and why ?

    You get what you give, and always have clean underwear.

    When our oldest and her husband and son moved from California to Denver last April I told her to remember that what she puts out she will receive ten-fold, to put $20.00 in a safe place every pay day for emergencies, (and DON'T touch it unless there is an emergency!), to never lose sight of who she is, or where she came from, to remember to be grateful everyday for what she has, and not to focus on what she doesn't have, and above all, to remember that no matter what we love her, and she always has a home to come home to if she needs it.

    Follow your dreams and don't surrender easily. Ask GOD to guide you and nothing is impossible.

    Two years ago, I divorced my ex-that had the heart-breaking consequence of me being seperated from my son. We still communicate regularly, but he's in another state. Before he left, I wanted to give him something from me that might help him in my absence. I made a small poster containing these things to go by:

    1. Never lie – ever. If you always speak the truth, then you always have a clear conscious.
    2. If you start something finish it. When you are finishing it, always do your best. No matter how it turns out, you know you did it to the best of your ability.
    3. If someone offers you a handshake, accept it. This is a man thing. Handshakes are offers of friendship, a gesture of equality. Accept them as a man would.
    4. Make friends. You don’t need dozens of them, but a handful of good friends is invaluable. They are people you can celebrate the good times with, who will share your sorrow and disappointment, and they can last a lifetime.
    5. Get involved. Whether it’s school, church, or sports. Life is a lot more fun if you are out there getting into it. High Schools have all kinds of cool clubs and activities. You don’t have to pick a bunch. Just one or two, and go enjoy them.
    6. Always look a person in the eye when you are talking. When you do, people will instinctually trust you more.
    7. Take a little time every day to be thankful. I know it sounds corny, but there ARE kids out there without shoes or enough to eat. Look around once in awhile and thank God for what you have.
    8. Follow your own path, not the one your buddies want you to. You know what is right and what is wrong. Anyone who pressures you to do something that you know is either illegal or dangerous isn’t really a friend.
    9. You are of the age now that you have to start thinking seriously about a career. Don’t make a choice because you just don’t know what else you can do. There are thousands and thousands of great jobs out there, and there are all kinds of people that can help you find the one you’ll really love. You have the intelligence to do anything you want to. Don’t be afraid to ask.
    10. Work hard and play hard. Take time to laugh and play and relax. And when it’s time to work, do that just as hard. There’s nothing like a good day of relaxation-and there is nothing as satisfying as knowing you did a good day’s work.

    I would tell my child and especially a girl child, protect yourself. It is not the responsibility of the mate but yours, its your life. And the other thing I would say is be true to yourself. If your gut says one thing and you want to do another,the gut is your best defender.

    I am dreading the day my kids leave home and it won't be long for my eldest, but my piece of advice would be... If he ever needs any one or gets in trouble to come to me first. x

    If you are right with God, then no one is left.  NEVER forget that He and I are with you all the way, every day.
