Ten bits of advice to my children for when they’re grown (and one besides):
1- Say thank you, tip generously and give compliments whenever you have the opportunity.
2- It’s better to be overdressed than underdressed.
3- Wear sunscreen and your seatbelt.
4- Going to church, reading the scriptures and praying are always worth your time.
5- Marry someone who will make you laugh and someone you can have fun with even on a long road trip
6- Be on time. It shows that you care.
7- Don’t begin sentences with, “No offense, but…” You probably will give offense.
8- If you have a crisis of faith back up to what you know is true and go from there.
9- Know the difference between things that last forever and things that don’t. Take care of the forever things.
10- Don’t honk your horn when you’re driving unless to avoid an accident. Honking just because you’re mad/impatient/feel wronged isn’t going to help anyone.
Also: I recognize the irony of this, because here I am, giving advice, but people don’t really like unsolicited advice. Wait to be asked. (Me writing this list is an exception.)
