Tweeps Say What They Learnt From Their Parents #WhatMyParentsTriedToTeachMe. For some people, their parents are their greatest teachers.
For some people, their parents are their greatest teachers. Parents teach us how to get through this thing called life. As adults we go to our parents for advice on certain life issues. Some people listen to their parents’ life lessons and some don’t listen, the advice might workout in the person’s favour or not. Tweeps recall what their parents taught them in their lives.
One tweep says his parents told him that not all people he considers as his friends actually want to see him get ahead in life. “#WhatMyParentsTriedToTeachMe that not everyone I consider as my friend will want to see me succeed I life and keeping those kinda people can slow me down from getting the best in life.” One tweep jokingly reference the famous ‘when days are dark’ line. The tweep says, ““When days are dark friends are few” but no man I realised that when days are dark [it’s night time] and most of my friends are sleeping.” One tweep says, “if you visit someone don’t eat food that they prepare unless you see it being prepared.”
One tweep says his mother taught him to never come back home without her Tupperware items. The tweep says, “Never come back home, if I lose her Tupperware.” One tweep says he was taught to respect his elders. The tweep says, “#WhatMyParentsTriedToTeachMe s to respect my elders even when they’re wrong.” One tweep says, “to never trust a lady who switches off her phone when she’s with you.” One tweep says he was taught to not look down on people who are trying their best. The tweep says, “never underestimate someone who’s trying their best, instead support them.”
