What Is the Biggest Lesson Your Mom Has Taught You?

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.

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.

 Good one!

 My mom also taught me to do my best and not strive for perfection because it can't be obtained

To stick it out when things get tough. She and my dad didnt have a very good relationship when I was growing up and I wanted her to leave him. But she stayed through thick and thin and now they are happier than ever. That "for better or worse" means just that.

Also, she modeled what it means to be a good Christian. It isnt about going to church so you get a check mark in the heavenly attendance roster--her faith is very real to her in a day to day sense, and now mine is too.

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 : )
