One day not too long ago..2 Australian mamas were sitting on a back deck, sipping wine.. and talking up all the oxygen available.. when the conversation turned to life lessons.. and what they thought were the ones that certainly and without doubt needed to be learned. The two teenage daughters of the 2 mamas were, in turn, amazed, amused, and repulsed, by the words of wisdom tumbling forth from the mamas' mouths. These are, in no particular order, those words.

Know that if you stop going to the gym, or exercising regularly, it will hurt like all stink when you start again.

Curiously, paper cuts are one of the worst injuries.

Saying No: In terms of sex,  No means no, say it clearly and mean it.  In terms of being asked to do something or go somewhere and you don’t want to or are unable to do so, then all you need to say is “No, thanks, I can’t.”

If someone you know and care about is taking drugs, offer support for them to stop but put your needs and safety first.  Always.

If the person you are involved with does not stop their sexual advances when you say no, then that is a criminal offence and you should tell someone

If you are at a party and your friends get really, really drunk and you don’t know what to do, call an ambulance and then call us.  We will get out of bed, no matter what time it is and help.

Know your parent’s friends’ mobile numbers, they care about you and your parents so if you can’t call us, then call them.  They will get out of bed and make certain you are safe.  They may even help you break the news to your parents.

We promise to stay sober every time you are at a party so that we can pick you up or help you if things get ugly.
