Everyone has parenting advice, but it's not always that great. Melissa Gilbert lets us in on what her parents told her.

Melissa says, "The best piece of parenting advice I ever received was from my dad. He told me, after I didn’t get a role I wanted, to never worry about things like that because it was meant to be and something better is going to come along. Of course, I was like 8 or 9 and didn’t believe him. Two weeks later, I got cast in Little House on the Prairie. My mother also had some great advice, and that was, 'No running by the pool!'"
