well my mom taught me everything I know almost... she and my dad are both hard workers and they always said a job is never done unless you gave 100% on it!! I got alot out of my mom she's always so forgiving its like eventhough I did the wrong thing she still loves me and I can see it in her eyes that she hates punishing me but she knows she has to so that I learn from my mistakes she's always there for me when I fall. even though sometimes I'm so mad at her she still loves me.. she taught me that life is made to be lived well and not to do any stupid stuff so that my life would be any less then a famous persons life.. we're all equal she would say and she always told be that I could do anything I set my mind to and the one day I would be rich and famous because she believed in me and I would suceed in anything I did even if I didn't start in basketball I was still the best player on the team to her and she was always there to watch me play no matter what happened.. she taught me love and family is the most important thing in this world and without that you've got nothing. I love my mother and always will even though some times we don't see eye to eye I've got to learn that she's gone through this before and she knows what she's talking about and I always know that she'll be there when I fall...

Well,quite a lot.My mother didn't teach me much.I wasn't live with my parents when i was young.So we didn't meet a lot.And i can learn from her that,if you want to success ,you should stick to what you started.And no matter how difficult to raach your goal.you need to stick to it and find a way to get through it ,insteand of giving up easily.
