What is the one things your parents always said, that you hope you never say to your kids?

I think mine would have to be " Don't make me turn this car around!"

  • I would have to say its this one " if you want to report me for child abuse, you better go ahead and report a murder, because I'm going to make it worth the time" I hated that one and still do and no I have never said that to my own children.

  • "Because I said so"

    WTF is THAT supposed to mean? When my mom said that I just took it as her being a bitch because she never explained to me that she had a reason for saying no. I hope to always at least have a valid excuse to give my son why I believe he should or shouldn't do something.

    I feel forgiveness is necessary for maintaining a good relationship not just with my DH and friends but with my children too. If I cant forgive past transgressions but instead throw it in everyone's face every time I get mad it will just start a fight not resolve the issue at hand.
