Every mother may that be in India, Europe, Africa or Greenland tells the same things to her children, here is a list. And this list has not changed in a long time
Am I talking to a brick wall?
Are you deaf or something?
As long as you live under my roof, you’ll do as I say.
Call me when you get there, just so I know you’re okay.
Did you brush your teeth?
Did you comb your hair?
Don’t go out with a wet head, you’ll catch cold.
Don’t pick your nose in public.
Don’t talk with your mouth full!
Enough is enough!
Going to a party? Who’s going to be there?
I don’t care what “everyone” is doing. I care what YOU are doing!
I don’t have to explain myself. I said no.
If you’re too sick to go to school, you’re too sick to play outside.
Look at me when I’m talking to you.
Money does NOT grow on trees.
Shut your mouth and eat.
What if everyone jumped off a cliff? Would you do it, too?
You’ll understand when you’re older.
Don’t ask me WHY. The answer is NO.
Go ask your father.
Go to your room and think about what you did!
How can you have nothing to wear? Your almirah is FULL of clothes!
I can always tell when you’re lying.
I don’t care who started it, YOU stop it!
I don’t know is NOT an answer.
I said CLOSE the door, I did not say SLAM it.
I would have never talked to MY mother like that!
Are you going out dressed like that?
If I want your opinion I’ll ask for it!
If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.
If you don’t clean your plate, you won’t get any dessert.
Leave your sister (brother) alone!
Now, say you’re sorry…and MEAN it!
Some day you will thank me for this. SMACK!!!
Your father is going to hear about this when HE gets home!
Most Importantly: I will always love you – no matter what
