My mom not only advised against being a musician, but also warned not to get involved with divorcees.

I'm a slow study...

Re: Things Your Parents Warned You About When You Were Young

My dad always warned me about walking behind the horses since it will spook them and they'll kick you. I ran behind one... once. I don't remember what happened. All I remember is waking up with my nasal cavity smashed in and bone fragment all in my face. I was 5 y.o. when it happened. I was afraid of horses for the rest of my childhood all the way up until I was an adult. Even now I have a huge amount of respect for the beasts.

Re: Things Your Parents Warned You About When You Were Young

My mom scared the sh*t out of me as a little kid when riding the subway, telling me to be conscious of what/who's behind me when the train is coming in and to stand back and away from the tracks because a crazy person might try to push me onto the tracks. I've seen my fair share of whack-jobs on the subway and I'm glad my mom taught me that one. Still useful to this day, especially now that I ride the subway almost every day to get to work and uni.

Re: Things Your Parents Warned You About When You Were Young

It's funny, my parents told me alot of things.. .and the majority of them were true! Too bad I didn't listen to them all that much, I'd be in a way better place in my life.. so I guess when my father said to me "son, you know what people are that don't listen to the people that traveled that road through life? They're stupid people! I been there, I did that I have the scars, head my warning and you won't" I'm a Stupid person LOL

Re: Things Your Parents Warned You About When You Were Young

My parents warned me not to try something and get ahead of myself(resulting in my quitting). It took me quitting boyscouts, piano lessons, soccer, and a couple of other things to finally get my **** together and stick with guitar, and boy I'm glad I did!

I can hardly tie my own shoes, so pretty much the only thing I can do is music.

My parents warned me about all sorts of things. But who ever listened to them?. For being so stubborn and stupid, I instead usually had to learn the hard way.
