This was a question I was asked. I have not given an answer yet, as I am not sure what that would be. The person who asked this is a male friend, married but not children. He is concerned about giving advice to his god-child, a senior in high school. He asked for my opinion in this matter. he also added.. what constitutes good-advice ? In order for any advice to be well received, and listened to . . . what frame of mind does the "advisor, and advisee" have to be in ? The best advice I ever received, did not even affect me at the time. Not until I, myself have lived through those life experiences. Then those words of wisdom forever embedded in my mind came to light. Is it not considered advice after the fact? must one live and learn lifes lessons to give advice?
