What do you do when your mom is criticizing your choices? Or when she is judging you? Or telling you how to live your life? You dig into the past. You have a few facts about HER hidden up your sleeve that she didn’t know you knew! Yeah. You know about that time she dated her boss after college. Good old grandma tipped you off on that one. And what happens when you bring these things up? Your mom gives you that, “Oh s*%t” look. She showed her hand. The tables have turned. Do you want to be in that position when you’re a mom? Nuh-uh. So just keep in mind some things you’re tempted to do today, that you’ll regret when you have a daughter.

Moving across the world for a guy

Before you uproot your life, leaving your friends and all you know, to move for a man, ask yourself if you would want your daughter to do that.

Quitting your job for a guy

You might meet a partner who is so well off that you no longer need to work. But that might not set the best example for your daughter–who you want to be self-sufficient.

Getting a visible tattoo

Do you want your 16 year old running off and getting a full poem tattooed to her rib cage? Then don’t get one yourself. You’ll have a hard time finding a reason to tell her she can’t do it.

Drinking and driving

You may think “It’s just one drink” but if you get a DUI, it will follow you around forever and your teenager will not take you seriously when you lecture her on safe drinking.

Dating a married man

But they’re separated. But it’s been emotionally over for years. We’ve heard it all. Will any of those reasons be good enough if your daughter gets involved with a married man one day? Or your husband steps out? Didn’t think so.

Flashing a camera

It may feel liberating when you’re drunk in Cancun, but Cancun has the Internet too. And cameras. Your daughter will also have the Internet one day.

Doing drugs

If you’re going to experiment with drugs just make sure your sister or best friend doesn’t know about it. They will get wine drunk and tell your daughter one day and she will hold it against you.

Visiting dangerous countries

Just know that every country you visit–you will have a very hard time telling your daughter that she can’t visit it, especially if you did it alone and didn’t tell anyone you were going.

Blowing all your money on the moment

If you believe that your daughter should have some sort of savings by the time she is 30, then maybe you should have some yourself.

Writing an angry blog post

If you, in the heat of the moment, write an angry blog post about an ex boyfriend or employer or politics, your daughter will find it and think there is nothing dangerous about doing something like this.

Eloping

You want to be at your daughters wedding one day right? Then don’t elope! You’ll have no say in the matter if she tries to do the same thing.
