Twenty Things A Mother Should Tell Her Son

I saw this on FaceBook and thought it to be good advice:

  1. Play a sport. It will teach you how to win honorably, lose gracefully, respect authority, work with others, manage your time and stay out of trouble. And maybe even throw or catch.
  2. You will set the tone for the sexual relationship, so don’t take something away from her that you can’t give back.
  3. Use careful aim when you pee. Somebody’s got to clean that up, you know.
  4. Save money when you’re young because you’re going to need it someday.
  5. Allow me to introduce you to the dishwasher, oven, washing machine, iron, vacuum, mop and broom. Now please go use them.
  6. Pray and be a spiritual leader.
  7. Don’t ever be a bully and don’t ever start a fight, but if some idiot clocks you, please defend yourself.
  8. Your knowledge and education is something that nobody can take away from you.
  9. Treat women kindly. Forever is a long time to live alone and it’s even longer to live with somebody who hates your guts.
  10. Take pride in your appearance.
  11. Be strong and tender at the same time.
  12. A woman can do everything that you can do. This includes her having a successful career and you changing diapers at 3 A.M. Mutual respect is the key to a good relationship.
  13. “Yes ma’am” and “yes sir” still go a long way.
  14. The reason that they’re called “private parts” is because they’re “private”. Please do not scratch them in public.
  15. Peer pressure is a scary thing. Be a good leader and others will follow.
  16. Bringing her flowers for no reason is always a good idea.
  17. It is better to be kind than to be right.
  18. A sense of humor goes a long way in the healing process.
  19. Please choose your spouse wisely. My daughter-in-law will be the gatekeeper for me spending time with you and my grandchildren.
  20. Remember to call your mother because I might be missing you.

  1. I loved this on Facebook, and love it here, too. Believe it or not, I keep a notebook of articles and other nifty stuff I want my kids (5,4,2, and 1 as of this writing) to see/read/learn when they’re older; this is in it. I’ll be sharing it with my daughters, too, when we talk about what qualities they should seek in a husband! Peace be with you 🙂 Kelly
