How to cook, which has served us well because my wife's mother didn't.

Always give money to street musicians because they make the world a happier place,

and ... (here comes the controversial part)

always give money to beggars. I know, I know. They're just going to get drunk, or you are just enabling, or a hundred other reasons why I shouldn't do it.

But I was taught not to judge someone else until I had walked a mile in their shoes. All part of the "do unto others ...".

As a 3rd grade teacher I try to teach my students to think for themselves...not be influenced by others...and to have the courage and bravery to stand up for their decisions.

I also believe it's vital for younger ones to know the importance of telling the truth. Although there may be a consequence, it's important to keep in mind that when telling the truth you don't have to remember what you said!
