The advice given by mothers to their children are many. But the ones that they realize to be the best, make sense. In this article, various readers share advice given to them by their mothers, which they think were best of all. Like the one shared by a reader from Columbus, Ohio whose mother once said, "Head up and toes forward." These are simple directions, but the reader has found that they saved him from getting caught in distractions. Similarly, an advice was given to another reader from his mother that said that facing fear and getting through it makes you stronger. He attributes every achievement in his life, to that advice.
