Things I learned from my Mother

Tip #9. My mother taught me about HYPOCRISY.
"If I told you once, I've told you a million times. Don't exaggerate!"

Tip #10. My mother taught me about the CIRCLE OF LIFE.
"I brought you into this world, and I can take you out."

Tip #11. My mother taught me about BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION.
"Stop acting like your father!"
