Our teenage years usually consist of some form of rebellion: staying out past your curfew, eating way too much junk food and putting off your homework until the morning of its due date. Despite our parents’ advice, we still do whatever we want because we think that we have our lives figured out. Only later do we realize that years of actual life experience can only give you wisdom. And, well, our mothers have a lot of that.
To show our appreciation to our mommas, we rounded up some of the best advice we got and how they changed our lives for the better. Happy Mother’s Day, and thanks for never giving up on us!
