Apply duct tape when necessary! If only our kids could hear how they sound to adult ears when they're advising us about fashion, exercise, behavior...keep your sense of humor; we sounded the same way at their age!


What nonsense you utter-

You are so young

I beg you to master

that arrogant tongue.

Speech is a tool

for a craftsman to weild;

By it, kings crumble

and the hungry are filled.

So, until you learn to weigh what you say,

Zip up you tongue And put it away.
Texas Bess

Bess, well said. Sometimes though they have a point. The young are so smart and we would do well to listen. I love people and am an excellent listener. I have learned alot from many younger than me.
