What Parents Should Say

What Parents Should Say Written by: D. Collins 5/6/16 And We Quote………… “Go out and test the water, but swim the right way.” “We relinquished rights on your eighteenth birthday.” “We’re on vacation enjoying some of life.” “We can’t get a signal or enough height.” “Your dad is busy. He can’t come to the phone.” “When you blow all your money don’t call home.” “Join the Army and go see the world.” “Wear a condom when you get with the girls.” “We’re only weening you ‘cause all animals ween.” “We’ll have to call you back, we’re on the putting green.” “We gave you the tools, now its time to use them.” "It’s called growing up to become young women and men.”
