There will be times in your life that you may not want advice but you should get it - especially when making BIG moves (moving, marriage, career, major purchases, etc).
Lay down your pride, research and get advice. Get advice from friends. Bounce ideas off co-workers. Get online and research.
Seeking or getting opinions doesn’t mean you have to take it. It means you’re being smart, sorting out information and making the best decision for you.
A MUST go to for advice are your parents. Not that we know it all. However, more than anyone else on earth we have your best interest at heart. Our guidance does not have a hidden agenda. We only want the very best for you. The last thing we want for you is to make a huge mistake.
I know it’s hard for you to take advice from us sometimes but really it’s not about us seeing you as little boys or us not having any faith or confidence in your judgment. It’s about you being smart, getting suggestions from people who love you with all that we are.
Although, I’ve said it a thousand times, I thought maybe I’d leave this here for you as another mommy reminder.
