When you choose a career...

Kase, your dad and I want you to find a career you're passionate about, like we are. Whether you choose music, or rodeo like your dad (I kind of hope it's not bull-riding -- so dangerous!), that passion is the sail that will carry you through any storm. With a strong sense of yourself, you'll never feel lost. Let that be your compass. -- Jewel

When you start dating...

Antonia, even though your dad was joking when he said he's putting bars on your windows, he's right: You have so much time to date! My advice is to watch how boys treat their mothers -- that's how they'll treat you. And stay away from show-offs! Find the shy one in the corner; he's probably the better man. As for you boys, well, make sure you marry a good girl. Bring home someone like Mommy! -- Melissa Gorga to daughter Antonia, 6, and sons Joey, 2, and Gino, 4. 

When you live on your own...

Girls, go out and experience life -- but be careful! I think back to how naive and reckless I was when I was first on my own. So here's what I'm preaching: Don't accept a drink from a stranger. Don't walk to your car alone in a parking garage. I worry! -- Martina McBride to her daughters Delaney, 17, Emma, 14, and Ava 6.

When you meet the new baby... 

Any time I've said, "Boys, come here!" in the last few months, you've said, "Is it time for the baby?" Now that it's happened, I hope you pass on your empathy and gentle spirits and help the baby carve out a special place in our family. -- Melissa Joan Hart, who is expecting this fall with husband Mark Wilkerson, to sons Mason, 6, and Braydon, 4.
