25 Things That Your Parents Were Actually Right About

Although your parents didn’t know much when you were a teenager, between the time that you graduated high school and left for college or started your first real job, they learned a lot didn’t they? All of a sudden they were filled with wisdom about life, finances, taxes, relationships, jobs, and everything else you could think of. This is usually what happens when you go from being a teenager to an adult. You realize that there were a few things that your parents were right about.

Now, just to be clear, we are not talking about all parents. There are certainly parents out there that abused their kids, did drugs, didn’t provide, etc. If that was your parents, we are terribly sorry; please take this list as being in honor of the good parents out there. Having said that, most parents have at least some wisdom about the world. There are things they’ve been through which have given them a perspective on life that is hard to gather when you are only a teenager. It may take some humility to admit it, but many of us eventually come to that point. Here are 25 things that your parents were actually right about.
