Hanging in my childhood bedroom was a framed "If Mother Says No, Ask Grandmother" done in crewel embroidery. That piece of advice wasn't so handy seeing as neither of my grandmothers lived within a 3-hour drive. Here are fifteen prints: manifestos, proverbs and other words of wisdom you might want to share with your kids.

Some are short and sweet, others wordier or quirky. Perhaps they'll inspire you to turn your own beliefs and credos for a happy, satisfying life into artwork for your kids.
