Have you ever listened to yourself when you're talking to your kids and thought, what on earth am I saying? You're not alone. We all find ourselves saying the oddest things to our kids at times – but in our defence, they drive us to it.

We're talking stuff like:

"Don't make me count to three!"

"Do you have to tinkle?"

"Uh-huh, that's a nice chair."

"What did I just say?!"

"One, two, two and three quarters…"

You get the drift, and I know you're nodding along. And now comedians Tripp and Tyler have put all of parents' greatest hits into one three-minute video. Watch it and tick off the ones you say. I'll bet there's loads.
