Mums are often full of advice – from the practical to the preposterous – and so, with Mother’s Day fast approaching, we want to know what’s the best piece of advice your mum (or mother figure) has ever given to you?

Perhaps your mum has a golden rule for finding the perfect romantic partner? Maybe she’s given you useful advice about managing money, or getting ahead in your career? Or perhaps her advice came in the form of a rhyme or catchphrase which has stuck with you well into adulthood? Either way, we want to know about the best tips, tricks and guidance your mum has passed on.
