Happy Mother's Day

Open Thread: What's the best advice your mum gave you?

From the sublime to the ridiculous.

MUM. MAM. MOM. No matter what you call her, you’ve no doubt looked for her help many times over the years.

Mums have a great way of giving advice, on everything from the big questions to the small things.

As today’s mother’s day, we’re asking what the best advice your mum – or the significant mum-figure in your life, whether she’s a step mum, granny, or guardian – gave you.

To kick you off, here’s the best advice our mothers gave us – and happy mother’s day to our mums! / YouTube

Tell us your mum’s best advice in the comments.
