    My little daughter then aged about 4 came running into our kitchen crying and said " Nicholas ( aged 5) up the road said he'd give me a sweetie if I showed him my knickers and I did and he didn't give me a sweetie.
    My "wise" father in law who was there at the time said " that'll teach you always get yer sweetie before showing yer knickers. She's 29 now and still recalls it. Not sure what lesson she learned except that she usually wears trousers...
    Anybody else got any pearls of wisdom learned as a child??

    after swimming everyone was moaning how cold it was. i said "dry your top half first" which everyone did and they were like "Wow, you're right!"

    it was something my dad said to me when i was at an outdoor pool when i was about 5 years old. i've never forgotten it. It's one of those obvious things to do which you don't unless someone points it out.

    My fave from my teens was being told that 'advice is something you only listen to when you go to make the same mistake a second time'.

    And don't eat yellow snow! Or any other colour for that matter!!

    Don't join the army... the best piece of advice my military father every gave me, and I almost ignored it too.

    There are of course the "Mum" favourites

    Take your coat off or you wont feel the benefit when you go out
    Don't sit too close to the television it'll make your eyes bad

    Stop doing that or it'll drop off :sad: or was that just me.....
