I was answering Calico's http://www.adisc.org/forum/diaper-ta...-ignorant.html Thread and thought of an interesting discussion topic.
How many have ever had a parent say that if you continue to do something something completely insane, yet possibly based on fact could happen to you.
If you make that face, it could stick that way.
If you eat before swimming, you could get a cramp and drown.
If you sit too close to the TV, you could go blind.
What are some things your parents used to say that scared you out of a certain behavior? Have any of them actually been true?
