Andy Andrews’ Fifty Famous Parental Sayings


If Andy Andrews parents were alive today, they’d honestly be amazed at what he remembers. They might say he has a mind like a sponge.

He actually remembers the very best things his parents and other mom’s and dad’s said. He even wrote them down and memorized them!

And with the holidays coming up, winter break means that kids will be spending a lot more time than usual with parents nearby, at least for a while.

And that means of course that normal kid-like behavior will surely trigger some of the most important communications that parents are capable of coming up with.

So parents, to help make your winter holiday with the kids easier than ever before, Andy is presenting you with his Fifty Famous Parental Sayings!
