10 Things You Should Never Say to Your Kids

The Top Ten
1 "Why can’t you be more like your sister/brother?"

Because I'm me, I'm not them.

Uhhh, because I'm not your perfect little prince?

2 "Great Job"

That’s a good thing - DrayTopTens

I remember really hating when people said this if I thought I had done a bad job. If I thought I deserved it, I was fine with it. - Yoshilord

What? I would say this to my kid. - letdot52

Not always. Sometimes, such as when you write, practice helps, but not with some things. - Cyri

My mom says this to me all the time :(

This is something that has always been said and practise makes perfect, great job, you're okay, hurry up say to anyone.

I think that might be a good thing so say.

I wouldn't go to sleep because I would cry

Women who always talk that to their husbands as well as their own kids must be very stupid, always calls themselves ugly no matter what and they try to be as skinny as a model, but they end up complaining about how fat they are by struggling to both healthy eating and exercising. pathetic!

Anything Nicki Minaj related being promoted to your kids would have you arrested for psychologically scarring them for life.

This is one of the most unforgivable things to say to your kids. - PositronWildhawk

If they listened to one song because of you there childhood is over and is a living hell - OneWayStreet

Truly one of the cruellest lines possible.

Creepier than creepypasta!
