In the first part of Proverbs 1, we learned about the beginning of knowledge and how important the fear of the Lord is. It is always important to keep your focus on God and stay away from bad advice. That fear will help prevent you from being lured by the wrong influences. Your parents are a key set of people to listen to on this earth, while studying and letting the Father (God) guide you through His word. Always avoid evil counsel and bad influences.
