We keep our feet on the ground.
Let’s be gentle with that, please.
We need to share, and it’s ______’s turn right now.
That’s not for OBaby.
Can you show me your indoor voice?
Let’s leave that there, please.
Ouch! That hurts Mommy!
Make good choices.
Show me how you do that gently.
Can you find something better to play with?
We don’t touch that.
If you _____, you are going to need to have a time-out.
Nuh-uh, not for us.
Let’s keep the water in the bathtub.
No thank you to that. (usually whining or fitting)
That’s not how we treat our friends/toys/mommy/cups/doors/books/furniture/floor/shoes/walls/dog.
That stays on the ground.
If you are all done, you need to tell me (instead of throwing your food on the ground).
Let’s leave that where it belongs.
We stay in the bathroom when we brush our teeth.
This is Mommy’s.
On your bottom, please.
Can you set that down nicely? Banging hurts Mommy’s ears.
Nope, we don’t need to touch that right now.
Not for little fingers/hands/mouths.
Our plate stays on our tray.
O, that’s not safe.
I will wait until you ask nicely.
We’re going to eat lunch/dinner very soon and if you still want that after, then we can have some.
Let’s keep our hands to ourselves, please.
We can drink that in the kitchen.
>>And lastly, but used with surprising frequency:
We don’t let doggies kiss inside our mouths.
