    On another thread, a frw of us brought up the point that parents, especially Black parents, seem to threaten their children with violence to make them "act right." What is the worst thing you have said you your kids to keep them in line? What is the worst thing your parents have said to you?

    Some of my favorites:

    Don't make me hurt you.
    I will knock you into next week.
    Stop crying before I give you something to cry about.
    I brought you into this world, I can take you out.

    My folks weren't good with one-liners. If a back hand didn't work the most threatening line was, "wait til your father comes home"! That was enough to make me :cry:

    My mama used to say some krazy stuff:

    "Say it again! I'll knock the living starch outta you!"
    "Go get me a switch!.....3 of em!"
    "Park It right henh!" (sit your butt down)
    "Now, I don' said it ONE time! I'm NOT gon' say it AGAIN!"

    My sister, brother and I to this day are still trying to figure out, WHAT IN THE HECK WAS THE LIVING STARCH?!

    Family....

    Ya'll have me in stitches over here.

    Ok...here's a few.

    1. "Boy....if you don't sit your little narrow *** down."

    2. "Bow up in my face again...I swear fo Gawd...I'll stump a mole hill in your ***."

    3. "Do it again...Do it again. I dare ya. Do it again."

    When she wanted me to be quiet because I was talking too much, she'd say:

    4. "Zip it!" :maddd:

    5. "Unt uh...move your hand." *pap pap* <<<< getting a spanking

    She would send me to the corner store. After giving me instructions, she'd say:

    6. "And you'd better get back here before this spit dries up." And then she'd spit in the grass...and I would take off running for the store. :lol:

    Ok...my all time favorite is: *...and I really thought she could do this...and was actually trying to do this*

    She was combing my hair for church and dem peas was a poppin'...she'd say...

    7. "Move again...and I'll slap da black off you."

    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I think living starch is about the same as the black that Monetary was talking about. Basically, she was threatening your life and ability to walk and talk normally.

    My granma wouls ask us straight out: Y'all want the belt? I'm still looking for the fool that said Yeah!
