Twenty Things a Mom Should Tell Her Son

This is trending on the Internet today, and I thought it was awesome post. Especially because Brett and I are trying to raise C2 to be a good man that respects himself and others and to be a great contributor to society.

C2 this is for you!




1. Play a sport.
It will teach you how to win honorably,
lose gracefully, respect authority,
work with others, manage your time
and stay out of trouble.
And maybe even throw or catch.

Of course, if you are anything like your mommy and daddy you will also like to win.

2. You will set the tone
for the sexual relationship,
so don’t take something away from her
that you can’t give back.

3. Use careful aim when you pee.
Somebody’s got to clean that up, you know.

You won’t be happy when you have to start cleaning the bathroom.

4. Save money when you’re young
because you’re going to need it someday.

I really want you to be a good saver and investor because I was not and it has made for some tough times.

5. Allow me to introduce you
to the dishwasher, oven,
washing machine, iron,
vacuum, mop and broom.
Now please go use them.

Thank goodness you think cleaning is fun now, but I am sure this won’t last.

6. Pray and be a spiritual leader.

Remember, this does not mean that you have to belong to a church or a certain affiliation to be spiritual and/or to pray. Not, that I am dissuading you, but I want you to chose your own path.

7. Don’t ever be a bully
and don’t ever start a fight,
but if some idiot clocks you,
please defend yourself.

Also remember to defend and protect your little sister as well.

8. Your knowledge and education is something
that nobody can take away from you.

Continue to be curious and learn all you can.

9. Treat women kindly.
Forever is a long time to live alone
and it’s even longer to live with somebody
who hates your guts.

10. Take pride in your appearance.

Yes, this means showering in your teen years too.

11. Be strong and tender at the same time.

12. A woman can do everything that you can do.
This includes her having a successful career
and you changing diapers at 3 A.M.
Mutual respect is the key to a good relationship.

13. “Yes ma’am” and “yes sir”
still go a long way.

In general, good manners and politeness go along way.

14. The reason that they’re called “private parts”
is because they’re “private”.
Please do not scratch them in public.

15. Peer pressure is a scary thing.
Be a good leader and others will follow.

16. Bringing her flowers for no reason
is always a good idea.

17. It is better to be kind
than to be right.

Plus, it really is hard to be right all time. 

18. A sense of humor
goes a long way
in the healing process.

Continue to giggle; it is infectious.

19. Please choose your spouse wisely.
My daughter-in-law will be the gatekeeper for me
spending time with you and my grandchildren.

20. Remember to call your mother
because I might be missing you.

I love you to the moon and back.
