Top Ten Worst Things to Say to Your Children


The Top Ten

1 You can become a mummy/daddy at any time you see fit.

This is just... Just... Hmm... - Britgirl

2 Yes, I'm only fifteen years older, but still older!

Whoever says this is setting the best possible example, if they want their kids to be equally sophisticated. - PositronWildhawk

3 I look at you and think, one day, you'll be tired of your troubles too.
4 Your possible younger brother or sister was unexpected and too much to handle, so mummy saw a special doctor.

Nothing would wrench a kid's heart harder. laugh out loud.

5 Let the big kids who did more maths than you decide what to spend your lunch money on.
6 You should know how making love works before you talk to her/him. It starts with a balloon.
7 Kids, the things that Tinky-Winky does backstage are best not to think about.
8 I have no problem with you eating at McDonald's once in a while. Just stay away from Ronald the Kid Killer.
9 Don't let the bed bugs kill you.

I think the phrase "Don't let the bed bugs bite" may also have a cultural context to it. - PositronWildhawk

10 You're Worthless and Will Never Amount to Anything

The Contenders

11 If I didn't love you, I'd leave you to the dentist.

I've seen many parents say something like that, to frighten their children, if they are into some sort of mischief or are starting to become an untamed horse. Fortunately, it never happened in my case, when I was a child. - Kiteretsunu

12 I Hate You
13 I Will Never Forgive Your Mother For Giving Birth to You
14 The stork brought you here
15 Kill yourself
