Kids divulge the best advice from their mums – and the answers are beautiful


We send our children off into the big, wide world, hoping we’ve armed them with a moral compass that will guide them through their tough times. So it’s heartening to see that kids really do listen to our advice, like these gorgeous students.

The Washington Post asked pupils from Our Lady of Mercy School in Maryland to share the best advice their mothers have given them.

Even the youngest students are able to articulate the sage advice their mums have passed on, including to never give up, be nice to others and to eat vegetables. Enjoy – and don’t forget to tell us below what advice you’ve given, or plan to give to your children.
