Posted by   + Show Post

Whether it’s teaching you how to play the piano, or showing you how to treat other people fairly, we all owe a lot to our moms for the lessons they taught us. 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 how to treat others and how to share.

That is very good advice!
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.

These are great!

Quoting SlightlyPerfect:

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.

She taught us to be honest, not to lie and backstab. Don't put on ammends for others and be ourselves.

I have practced that into adult hood.

I hate liars, backstabbers, brown nosers and any phony people.

That is great that you were able to help each other learn that way.
Quoting LindaClement:

The exact oppositive of what I taught her: not to argue.

I'm argumentative by nature... she's not. I taught her to stand up for herself. She taught me to sit still and listen :D

Quoting dusky_rose:

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).

 Great answer : )
