    • If all of your friends jumped off a bridge, would you?
    • Stop crying or I'll give you something to cry about.
    • "ELBOWS OFF THE TABLE!"
    • If you keep making that face, it'll freeze that way.



    What did your parents tell you as a child?

    I was raised in a Roman Catholic home and every time I whistled when I was a kid, my mum who hated that and thought it was boyish, told me it makes Virgin Mary cry!

    Then one same as the jumping off the bridge. When I was a teenager (one of the bad days lol), she said if your friends eat s**t, are you going to?

    I tell my son his nails will fall off if he continues to bite them.

    When I was little and was fussing and crying for no reason my dad used to tell me that I may use up all my tears and not have any for when I scraped my knee or something and really needed them.

    When i was being bratty, my mom would always say to me: ``If you`re asking for it, you will get it!`` I knew what that meant! lol. I told my kids the same thing and i tell my grandkids that too.

    Don't sit too close to the television, it'll ruin your eyes.
    I don't know is NOT an answer.
    I'll wash your mouth out with soap.

    As well as several in Ukrainian, which really don't translate well -

    “Figu z makom” (Figs with poppyseeds) - means you are getting nothing

    “Masty sobi holovu!” (Go smear your head!) - used when a parent is frustrated, it's a way of saying do what you want, I don't care any more.

    ``I can see you! I`ve got eyes in the back of my head!`` When one of my grandsons was younger, he wanted to check out my head to see the eyes in the back of my head. lol

    I was quoted poetry by parents when life lessons were being taught.
    One of them,

    The heights that great men reached and kept
    Were not attained by sudden flight
    But they while their companions slept
    Tolled slowly upward in the night

    I think

    Meaning, you will get there, where you want to go, with hard work. Others try to skip some steps and cheat, but they fail. Others are looking at everybody else and not paying attention to their own stuff and they never get anywhere.

    So pay attention to yourself and work well, trying to improve yourself to reach your target.

    (parents had to memorize poetry in elementary school and high school)

    I distinctly remember my father informing me that "we do not discuss family business/matters outside the house".

    Mom told me early on - in primary or grade 1 - that female friendships in groups of three are not a good idea, that they usually result in some form of gossip, hurt feelings, or betrayal, and that they are best avoided. That was good advice. Unfortunately, I have not always followed it, and it has always proven to be true.

    The 'eyes in the back of my head' comment. My mother said it all the time. I found it very annoying, lol. I make it a point to never say it to my kids.

    Every New Years Eve if we didn't eat our dinner my mum would say if we didn't eat we weren't allowed to eat for the rest of the year. Think I was 13 or 14 before I figured it out, lol.
