~Things Not To Say To Your Teens~

1)When I was your age!
Big turn off they don't believe you ever were.
2)Because I said so.
No explanation needed.
3)Why can't you be more like?
You fill in the name.
4)What do you think I am, Stupid?
You don't want to hear their answer.
5)Are you going to wear that today?
That's just asking for a fight.
6)If I ever did that my parents would've killed me!
You know that's a lie and so do they.
7)If your friends jumped off a bridge would you jump too?
That's an obvious no.
8)It's just puppy love, you'll get over it.
Just shows them your old and don't remember what it's like.
9)Doing that could hurt your future!
Kids only worry about the here and now.
10)You need an attitude adjustment!
Probably true, just find a different way to say it.
11)Why don't you grow up?
They are trying too.

The title caught my eye, and hahahahha!!! All of this is so so true! By the 4th one I had an ear to ear grin and by the last line I was cracking up... Thanks for the enjoyment, I should be a little more open-minded on how hard I am on my parents...

hehe... i like this... words like: "Would you care to explain..." and "I've paid a lot of money to find this information out, so you better start talking now"... the first one is asking for trouble and the second one is just... eech... melodramatic? lol yeah, the latter one actually happened to me with my mother when i was a teenager... but i have to say, my mom wasn't well and had her own take on reality... :) thanks for sharing this... we definitely can all relate to this in our own way :)

later... xx

Very good--I heard them when I was growing up and used them when my kids were. "Did you just fall off the turnip truck?" That's an Arkansas one I think. I never heard of it being used anywhere else. I really did like this.

All of the above is true, and so much more. I can't think of anything to add right off the top of my head, but you have a great list here already. lol great job once again!

Lol. These are all so very true! I think that I have heard them all over time. And I'll probably say them to kids of my own some day. Lol. Nice write! I like it!
