Honor your father this year by posting his sage advice on Patch.com.

Happy Mother's Day! To honor moms across St. Clair Shores, we want to know what is the best advice your mother ever gave.
As much as we hate to admit it, Mom is usually right. Her wisdom is infinite and her advice is sound–if not always solicited. Our conscience sounds suspiciously like her voice and sooner or later we realize, "Shoot, mom was right after all." From haircuts to relationships, our mothers express their opinion on just about every aspect of our lives. While some can't help but be ignored, others may very well be the best advice we'll ever receive. Today we celebrate Mother's Day, and want readers of St. Clair Shores Patch to finish this sentence, "The best advice my mom ever gave me was ..." Share mom's best advice in the comments section below.
