Five Life Lessons from Full House

The Importance Work-Life Balance

Remember when Uncle Jesse took Aunt Becky and the twins to Japan while he was on tour with Jesse & The Rippers? Uncle Jesse learned the value lesson that there is a fine line with work-life balance, and he needed to make the effort to ensure his family life didn’t suffer from the fame and stress of his line of work.

You Can Have More Than One Best Friend

When Teddy moved back, Michelle thought she had the difficult choice of choosing between Teddy and Denise when she had to draw one of them for a school project. In the end, Michelle realizes that old friendships and new friendships are just as valuable, and that you can have more than one best friend.

Cadet Kelly also drilled this into my head in case you were wondering.

The People That Love You Most, Will Come Around Again


Friendships & relationships often come and go, but those who are meant to be in our lives, will come around again. We saw this in the final episode of Full House, when Steve makes a last minute appearance to be DJ’s prom date, just as Michelle regains her memory.

You Will Make Poor Choices, But Pick Yourself Back Up Again

Wow, did the last episode of Full House really bring a lot of great lessons. Michelle took a risk by taking her horse out along the beaten path. When the horse got spooked, Michelle was tossed off the horse, hitting her head and giving her amnesia. But, as we find out in part two of the finale, Michelle Rides Again. Or when Uncle Jesse fell a bunch of times trying to skate.

Just because we choose to take a risk, and it is fails, doesn’t mean we can’t learn from those mistakes and failures to pick ourselves up again.
