There are some life lessons you're never too old to learn (or re-learn), but it never hurts to start early! Next time you and your kiddos need a laugh, teach them these funny life lessons they won't learn in school.

1. Don't worry about what other people think; they don't do it very often. (aka be yourself!)

2. Before criticizing someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes. (Just kidding!)
