ABC News Correspondent (plus Joanie’s daughter and Andrew’s wife) Amy Robach is here to share the best lessons she learned from her Mom.

My mom taught me that laughing and being silly is important. I also learned from her relationship with my father, that one needs to draw a line between being giving and caring, and walked all over. It was one of those "what not to do lessons" by what she did do (I try to do the opposite).

Treat others the way you want to be treated.

My mom taught me to treat everyone with respect, be honest and love with all your heart.

I am responsible for myself. And only myself.

As she always said, "I can only answer for me, Kelly."

Also, the big one I follow: "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything. At. All."

I follow both sayings religiously.

Love this! So many women learn the opposite from their moms.

Quoting SarahSuzyQ:

That I am the only one responsible for my actions, and that I need to make decisions based on what I can live with rather than what other people want or expect.
