Mom Advice We Don't Follow

What Moms Tell Kids to Do, but Don't Do Themselves

As a mom, you're always telling your children what to do and when to do it. Between asking them to clean their rooms for the third time or telling them to wash their hands, it's easy to think of yourself as the household drill sergeant. While you try to follow that advice, it's easy to slip up when it comes to the less important tasks of life. Check out a few of things we always say to our kids, but may not always do ourselves.
