Readers Respond: The Most Cliche Thing I've Said as a Parent is…

Remember back when you were a kid and your mom would irritate you with these phrases she would say that you just hated (not you mom! heh)? I wrote a post a few days ago with the phrases I have heard parents say to their kids that drive me crazy – some of you agreed and some of you didn’t. In fact, most of you were against one of them in particular (“because I said so”).

Babble then decided to ask you all what “the most cliche’ thing you’ve ever said as a parent” was and your answers had me giggling.

Click through to read the hilarious ways Babble readers finished this sentence:

“I will never use those tired parenting phrases on MY kid” – Rachel

“Don’t make me come back there” – Danielle

“Because I said so” – Christina

“I do the counting like my mom used to. 1….2….2 1/2….2 3/4..”  – Joy

“Is that poop or chocolate?” – Rachael

“Because I am your mother and I said so” – Stephanie

“sleep while you can” – Marla

“You can eat whatever you want for breakfast when you’re an adult” – Rachel

“Wait ’til your father gets home” – Joanna

“I’m the mom, that’s why” – Wendy

“This hurts me more than it hurts you.” – Nia

“There are starving children all over the world so EAT YOUR DINNER” – Rachel

“One, twooooo, three!” – Tonya

“If all of your friends were jumping off a bridge, would you do it, too??” – Tisha

“Don’t you dare do that” – Veronica
