I was taught respect for others, to understand always two sides to a tale, get both versions before making judgement. One thing I have learned - Be kind, be helpful but don't be s**t on.

1.Always put others before yourself. 2.Honesty is key and 3.Be yourself and be proud of who you are.

They have been pretty successful; sometimes I put people before myself when it should be the other way around. As for being proud of who I am, yep I am :)

1) Be Kind 2) Be Good 3) Be Careful. Think there was some other stuff about honesty, integrity, eat all your food etc. As for successful....hmmmm.

I would say many things were instilled in me! As to the success, I would think that should be judged by my parents!

1) Respect your elders. 2) Manners. 3) Stop pooping on the carpet...supposedly when they were trying to change me. Maybe that's why, if I go on a 'date', it goes really well until I go back to hers....lol

Excuse my last 'your' in my previous comment. It should be 'you're'.

Well, I can always remember Mum saying 'Always take pride in your appearance'. I don't ever remember being told off for bad manners, so I must have had that instilled from very early on and I know my Dad always said, 'Do the best you can and that's all anyone can ask for' or words to that effect. Another good saying of his is, 'Nothing's ever as good or as bad as you think it's going to be', and I've always found that to be true; particularly useful if your nervous about something.

1 Honesty; I've never stolen anything apart from Marilyn Waller who I stole from some bloke called David when I was thirteen. 2 Good table manners; I believe good manners in general often start with good table manners. 3 Be aware of where you are; In otherwords if it's quiet where you are YOU be quiet too.

I will ask my mum and get back to you. I don't remember any so they were maybe unsuccessful! Oh, I just remembered my mum used to say to always smile or people would not like me, I frowned a lot apparently!

On-top of Ed's 3 things you have to be a nice person even in the worst of situations then people can never use it against you.

Sorry about the spelling mistake - My parents, reasonably successfully I like to think, instilled (as the top three) Manners, Respect & Honesty.
