We are all familiar with the adages “kids say the darndest things” and “from the mouth of babes.” What is the most surprising piece of advice you have ever received from a child?

Inspiration Corner

“After my mother passed away, I had something of hers that I didn’t want to throw out. My daughter, in her young wisdom, said, ’Mom, if you throw that out it doesn’t mean you will forget your mother.’”
– Joy Nastaskin, Bookkeeper

“The two best pieces of advice I received from my son are: never clean a fish tank with baby powder - it doesn’t work.’ (He was about 3 if I remember correctly. He tried to be responsible and clean the tank himself.) And ’try to find something positive in all negative situations.’ He said this last month – he gets this outlook from me.”
- Trish Aguiar, legal assistant

“Catherine, age 5, the happiest kid, I know: ’If you turn on the music in your head, you can dance whenever you want.’

Matthew, age 9, regarding schoolyard woes: ’If people are mean to you, you should be nice to them so they learn to be nice, too.’

First aid tip from Owen, age 6: ’If you hurt your nose, never put a band aid over your nostrils, because then you won’t be able to breathe.’”
- Courtney Mulqueen, Associate Lawyer
