As mothers our job is to pass down important information to our offspring, from how to behave, how to be confident and secure, and how to navigate through our society in a positive and polite way. While doing this, we share – on average – about forty-one “pearls of wisdom,” to our kids, this is according to a new study conducted in the UK by Clinton’s Cards.
Tim Fairs, a spokesman for the firm said, “Even as adults we continue to go back to mum for her wisdom and advice on daily scenarios, because as she says herself “Mum knows best.”” He added, “and it’s these little nuggets of information which we hold dear, and which get passed down from generation to generation. These pieces of advice might be small, but the very fact they stay with us for years on end prove they hold great weight.”
We have taken their list of the 41 most common adages that moms pass on to twenty-five of the most common and used ones today. Twenty-five pieces of advice, instruction or just encouragement that we’ve all heard, some of us have used, and which our own children will – no doubt – pass on to theirs.
