READERS DISCUSS: Best piece of advice from mother

IN the lead up to Mothers' Day last week, The Bulletin asked readers what the best piece of advice their mother gave them.

The post received 60 comments from readers.

Here are some of the responses:

Kristina Alyse Van Egmond - If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all.
Elly Fisher - 1. Never show a man you can do everything because pretty soon he will do nothing.
2. It takes days/months/years to build trust and only seconds to destroy it.
Stacey Stewart - Always tell your husband that you've had those shoes/dresses for years or that they only cost $2.
Katherine Herring - A girl needs to be able to look after herself. Don't be completely reliant on a man to do everything. Because if say he suddenly up and dies/ leaves, will you have the means to look after yourself/ children.
Mow the lawn, use a power tool, manage your funds, get a job, change a tyre. I know I can.. 🏻
Deb Clifford - If the condoms not on its not on
Joanne Grosskopf - Don't Marry him, unfortunately she didn't say that to me but I wished she did
Maria Finlay-Frenken - never let the sun set on an argument because you do not know if your partner or you will wake in the morning.............
Penny Positive O'Donnell - Always make sure your underwear is clean, never know when you'll be in an accident.
Elaine Hans - Find something everyday to be grateful for , no matter what else is happening around you
Geoff Horsten - you ever hit a women, don't worry about the cops, then THE look.
Ryan Mathew Newport - Don't do drugs
Anna McKenzie - Don't drink cheap wine.
Sally Johnson - Always be on your best behaviour because if not your mother will hear about it before you even get home.
