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. Keep a good sense of humor. 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.

        It is. But who did advice their son like this would be a wise person.

        I agree, it is a parent’s responsibility to give their child the keys to correct behaviour.

  3. Interesting, what should a mother tell her daughter?

      You tell me 😉 from a man’s perspective it could be interesting. Or a father tell his daughter.

      1. No disrespect intended, when I read it. It seemed to be telling a son from the mother to step down to a woman, instead of living up to their son’s potential.

        I could’ve misread it, but this is want I got out of it.

      2. I don’t think it should be any different between a mother and a daughter, a father and a son, a mother and a son or a father and a daughter.

        Simply put, “live up to and beyond your potential” nothing less. If one day you find the perfect companion, you will know what is expected, since you would want them to be honest and forthright with you so extend that to them.

        If they truly love you and you truly love them, it will all work out, with work. Since nothing worth living for or dying for is ever easy.

        Maybe the person who wrote this had not found their perfect companion then!
        Yes I would tell my kid, boy or girl, to know themselves and be true to themselves, that’s how they will know if someone is wright for them. Take care of themselves so they would know what is good for them in a relationship. The rest is work like you said.

      4. I just think that eventually you have to let them go out into the world themselves. All you can do to prepare them is to “harden and solidify” their armor. A solid core belief and understanding of what is and what will not be acceptable.

        In the end, all they must do is try and never quit trying.

    I hear ya. I don’t know the context of the first appearance of this text, it’s a reblog, and my guess is that it comes from a woman whose partner didn’t respect her, so she wrote this because she wished the mother of this man had told him these things. Of course, the first thing is to teach the son to live up to his potential. I guess many men across the world need to be told these things, because unfortunately they are not all aware that they have a part in the household chores, or it’s not always obvious to all men that women are not there to serve them… like their mother did.
