Things You Say To/About your Kids that will Come Back to Haunt You when They are Teenagers and Say...

You: Why don't you ever listen to me?

Teen: You NEVER listen to me!

You: Do you not understand what I am saying?

Teen: You just don’t understand!

You: I wish I had more time with my friends!

Teen: Leave me alone I just want to be with my friends!

You: Can’t you see I’m on the phone??

Teen: Can’t you see I’m on my phone/blackberry/MySpace?

You: (To a stranger) Oh I’m sorry! I am so embarrassed my child did/said that!

Teen: Ugh my parents are SO embarrassing!

You: I REALLY don’t want to get out of bed right now!

Teen: I REALLY don’t want to get out of bed ever!

You: You’re NOT wearing that out!

Teen: Are you seriously going to wear THAT?

You: Do NOT give me that look!


You: KNOCK before you open the bedroom door!

Teen: Don’t you ever KNOCK???

You: I love you!

Teen: I love you! (OK, so this isn’t an utterance to regret, thankfully I could only think of nine…)
