Parental advice too often sounds like Charlie Brown's teacher. All the kids hear is "Wah wah wah wah...." The more I talk, the less they hear. With emphasis on brevity, here is the most succinct advice I can offer my children:
Dental Hygiene: Brush and floss daily.
Driving: Blessed are the merciful.
Investments: Buy low, sell high.
Heaven: Despair not; presume not.
Food: Gluttony is a sin.
Dating: Keep your pants on.
Gratitude: Be the tenth leper.
Authenticity: Be who you are.
Moving on: Don't forget to write!
Always remember: You are blessed indeed!
