R in Mother is for… Right

As teenagers we al­ways think our moms are so out-of-tune to life. We think their ‘an­cient’ brand of wis­dom is ridicu­lous and that we our­selves know it all. How­ever, af­ter we chase af­ter our own un­der­stand­ing, we usu­ally come back to re­alise that woman was right (whether we ad­mit it to her or not). She was right about the lat­est look not be­ing quite right for us (blue hair did not suit my skin­tone), she was right about need­ing to study hard, even though we wanted to spend the ex­tra time with friends and she was right about the ‘bad boy’ break­ing our heart.
