Six words on the most memorable advice mom ever gave you!
« on: May 05, 2013, 11:25:19 PM »
For the newest six-word challenge, we're asking you to share the good, bad and ridiculous advice given to you by the mom figure in your life. Post in comments here by May 31 and we'll pick two winners to receive "Things Don't Have to be Complicated: Illustrated Six-Word Memoirs by Students Making Sense of the World," an e-book with TED Books, or "I Can't Keep My Own Secrets," the first book from SMITHTeens. We'll announce winners here and on the forums at the beginning of next month!
