Our families teach us everything we know, and what we learn from our parents becomes a part of our stories as well. The teach us to eat everything on our plate, no matter what, just like Trent Bruce's mom. They teach us that intimacy is ideally a private affair - and hopefully, it includes soundproofing, as Erin McGown found out. And they teach us that honesty is always the best policy, unless you're trying to get into Disneyland, as Taylor Mallory's family knows too well. Take a listen, and then thank your parents.
