What was the worst piece of parenting advice you have ever received? (VIDEO)

Melissa Gilbert shares the worst advice she got from her mom

Melissa Gilbert talks about the worst advice she ever got from her mother.

Melissa says, "It’s hard for me to pick out the worst piece of parenting advice. It’s kind of not fair to do that. I’ve let go so much of the stuff from my childhood that was kind of weird and difficult to get through. There was a moment when I was a teenage girl, and I had just gotten my heart broken. I was sobbing and I had my head on my mom’s lap. She was trying to comfort me and said, 'You don’t understand, this is just the beginning.' That was not something I needed to hear at that time!"
