Mother’s Words Dealing with Obedience

How many times have we caught ourselves using the same old clichés we have heard a thousand times ourselves?  More times than I’m sure we care to admit.  Here are few rantings that are sure to make any kids eyes roll back in their head.

Don’t make me get up.

By the time I count to three…


Do as I say, not as I do.

Because I said so!


How many times do I have to tell you?

I’m not going to tell you again.

I’ve told you a million times


What part of ‘NO’ don’t you understand?

You can make the rules when you have a family of your own.


Not while your living under my roof.

Don’t ever let me catch you doing that again.


Look at me when I’m talking.

Don’t look at me that way

    OK. I remember telling my mom I would never give the answer "because I said so" to my kids. "What kind of answer is that anyway" I would ask her. HA! Well, I'm almost sure I said that one today:) Along with a few of the others. Great post.
