This is all great advise. Some of it may seem silly or even not that important but it all is. We are very lucky to have parents who give advice and then let you work thru whatever on your own. Number 28 is very important, it shows your kids you like to be with them and want to be on their level, but you really need a grown-up there telling you someone's going to get hurt. I've lived my life by #26 and 27. Can you believe that some women out there, have never received this important advice. It really is true. As my girls would say "All good advice, some more favorite, but all good."
