Mothers are the same the world over. They love us more than we can ever know… and how do we repay them when we’re children? By driving them crazy with our annoying little ways, our thoughtlessness, silliness and on more occasions than we might like to admit, our selfishness.

Powered by a love that knows no bounds, our long-suffering mothers take it all and carry on loving us just the same.

However, that doesn’t mean they don’t clamp down hard on us… and give us the benefit of their experience in the form of constant instructions, commands, threats, warnings, pleadings and so on.

It’s amazing how mothers all across the world unite in saying the same things to their offspring. But rather than list the things mothers tend to say, we thought we could make the point better by listing the top things that mothers never say.
