Life advice for kids
Real parents share the important life advice every child should know.
Every parent wants the very best for their child. Whether it's to get a good education or be successful in business, all parents want their children to be happy and well adjusted. Parents love to impart wisdom to their children and of course they hope that it sticks!

We took to Facebook and Twitter to ask what the most important advice is that they'll ever give their kids. These were the pearls of wisdom that they had to share.
