When we’re young, our parents are always spouting off food for thought that we mostly roll our eyes at or ignore. And then one day when we find ourselves drowning in the reality that is adulthood, one of those nuggets of knowledge pops in our brain and we think, “that’s why my mom/dad always said such and such!”

That’s right, they weren’t trying to curb your fun, they were trying to instill values in you and raise a self-respecting adult which you now most likely are if you understand these childhood lessons.

    “Not everyone is your friend” I remember being in 1st grade and my so-called friend told the teacher I took an extra cookie at snack time. Ohhhh I was hot!! I couldn’t believe she snitched. I thought we was besties. My mom was like “Welp”

    When I had my first boyfriend, my dad told me that if he was really into me, he would want to take me out. If not, he’s just a joker. I thought my dad was just being old-fashioned and extra — there was no way “my boo” was not into me. We hung out all the time — by his house. In his garage. His friend’s basement. I didn’t think him taking me out to dinner or whatever was necessary.

    I later realized my dad was SO right. “My boo” was full of games.

    “Take a nap”. I am 28 and at the tail end of my graduate degree with both a full and part time job. I LONG for the days when I could take a nap in the middle of the day.

      When I was in Kindergarden I used to hate it when they had nap time. Now that’s all I want & need & if someone can pay me to take naps, I will gladly accept this job
