You have learned much from your parents and by sharing what they taught you with this post, you enable them to teach thousands of others.

A great read for any mother or father trying to raise their children with good wholesome values. Thank you! I have recently just moved to Aberdeen, Scotland so it raised a smile when that lesson was mentioned :. Your parents must be so touched and moved by this post. You have done a beautiful thing.
They are so young still too. My father-in-law is about to turn 81 and with a bit of effort does get down on the floor to play board games with my girls. I get tears in my eyes every time I see him make the effort and it makes me appreciate the small-big things in life I loved this! It reminded me of the way I was raised. My father was from Germany and taught me many valuable lessons. Thank you for this! My favourite is work hard…amazing life lesson,this is one of the lessons I will always try to follow.
What a load of crap! The title should be rewritten as: 60 obvious realisations you have by the age of Thank you for your post. It reminds me that there are good people in the world who foster good families. Nice to read a positive post that speaks to the soul rather than wallowing in the many unpleasant news stories that surround the media each day. Thanks a lot, Joshua. I lost my father in when I was a small boy. I always feel bad each time my mind goes back.
No father to advice me. And I always believe that this impacted my life negatively.
I will go over it again and again. That is my father! Very grateful, sir! I grew up in Foster care with parents who were rednecks and alcoholics who taught me all the wrong ways to live in life.
Thanks to my personal mission to eventually find and seek God I now have started to become the person I was always meant to be. Through him only. This inspired me to know what real parents teach their children when they love them.

I was not loved growing up. You are a very fortunate kid. Unfortunately I could not be a good parent for my kids because my values were wrong. But I have learnt a lot from your example and your parents and hopefully will be a better parent in my next life. Thank you Joshua for sharing it and please say a prayer for me so that I can be a better grandparent. Although I have never had children of my own, I have learned so much from the children of others.
