    These are fabulous! I got many of these were taught to me in just the same words!

    "10. My parents taught me about STAMINA.
    'You'll sit there until all that spinach is gone.' "
    - For me it was stewed tomatoes. :?

    "6. My parents taught me FORESIGHT.
    'Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you're in an accident.' "
    - I never quite understood this one. If you're in an accident, chances are you're going to dirty the underwear right then anyway.

    "19. My parents taught me ESP.
    'Put your sweater on; do you think I don't know when you're cold?' "
    - Actually, for me it was misbehaving that my mother told me she could always see. I think I was a teen before I ever thought to doubt it was true.

    I love those. 25 is my favorite. I laugh to myself everyday as my now grown headstrong daughter copes with my headstrong DGD.
