1. Будь осторожен. (Bud' ostorozhen.) “Be careful.”
Number one - Будь осторожен. (Bud' ostorozhen.) “Be careful.”

2. Тише! (Tishe!) “Be quiet.”
Тише! Тут нельзя разговаривать. (Tishe! Tut nel'zya razgovarivat'.)

It’s like usually in the theater or in the museum.
In church.
Yeah, or in church, yes. Always same thing.

Раз. Два. Три… (Ras. Dva. Tri…) “1. 2. 3…”
No, no. Don’t, don’t turn it off. Stay with me, stay with me, Katya, Russian language.
7. Хватит. (Khvatit.) “Stop.”
Хватит плакать! Хватит, всё, хватит! (Khvatit plakat'! Khvatit, vsyo, khvatit!) “Stop crying! Stop it, stop!”
Stop running around! Stop! Хватит бегать! Хватит!(Khvatit begat'! Khvatit!)
8. Что ты сказал? (Chto ty skazal?) “What did you say?”
To your mother. What did you say? Excuse me, can you repeat it again?
9. Я не шучу. (Ya ne shuchu.) “I'm not kidding.”
Так. Я не шучу. (Tak. Ya ne shuchu.) “I’m not kidding. Seriously.”

Сейчас же выключай телевизор! Который час уже?! (Seychas zhe vyklyuchay televizor! Kotoryy chas uzhe?!) “What time is it?! Turn the TV off, now!”
So what do you think? Did your parents tell you the same things. Now, you can repeat it in Russian and they wouldn’t understand it which is a good part. Now it was 10 phrases your parents always say.

Parenting is universal. Still, I am surprised that parents in Russia say the exact same things to their children as parents do on the other side of the planet. No wonder the Russian word for brother is “брат!”
