I suppose it's never too early to start compiling a mental list, right? So....What is the one best (or two if you can't decide) piece of advice you have received about raising a child?

I have two...

Whenever your child falls down, don't rush over to pick them up - see if they pick themselves up first, realize they're ok and move on. (obviously if it's a serious fall with no doubt of an injury, this rule doesn't apply)

Always tell your child what TO do instead of what NOT to do (i.e. A positive command versus a "No! Don't do that!" command)
