Hey Mommas, I want to hear some advice you give your children. Whether it’s casual, funny, clever, straight forward, or thought-provoking, I want to hear it all!
I will begin with one I tell my children. It is inspired from a poem that I surprisingly remember from ages ago:
كم گوي و گزيده گوي چون در // تا زاندك تو جهان شود پر
Kam gooy va gozideh gooy chon dor //
Ta zeandakeh to jahaan shavad por
Speak little and choose your words wisely, like a rare pearl
So that from the little you have spoken the world can benefit
The way I relay this to my children is by telling them that: You have two ears and one mouth, and that they should be used in that ratio.
I will add more to this list soon!
