Things our parents used to tell us...

I have had some time to think about deferent things  we as parents say to make our children "obey". Growing up I always heard:

"Watch out, I have eyes in the back of my head" (still waiting for those btw) lol

"You see with your eyes not your hands"

"Carrots help you see in the dark"

"Don't sit that close to the t.v. you will go blind."

"If you keep making that face, it will stay like that forever"

"Stop rolling your eyes or they will get stuck back there" lol

What are some of the things your partents used to tell you? Do you use them on your children? If so what were your results, did it really make them obey?

My dad had me convinced the ice cream truck only played music when it was OUT of ice cream.

- You will have an orange tree growing on your head if you eat the seeds.

- Parents are always right. Wait until you have your own children.
