    Always Have and Always Will

    I have been trying new thing on my children for all their lives.  I now hear my daughter saying some of the things I used to tell her when she was younger.  I have to laugh when she comes to me for advice about getting her kid to do something they don't want to do.

    Things I'd Advise My Children To Do
