How Do You Normally Greet Your Parent? by WarfyBoy(m): 1:12am On Mar 05, 2008
How do you greet your Parents when you

wake up

or

see them 4 d first time

Or After eating a meal.

Some of the elder friends i had said its better n mo respectful to greet in your native dialect than using english.

So i always greet my parent Khai ra [ishan language, i dnt kno if dts d corect spelin tho] after eating or in the afternoon.

Then Es an when i just wake up

So lets have your say on this, how do your own parents wants you to greet them?

Well most of the time I usually hey mom or good afternoon, morning or whatever time it is

Even when I was still young, i don't remember going on my knees to greet my parents, and if that happens maybe because am apologizing  for sometimes i did or begging them to give me what I needed.

But majority of the time I don’t always greet my parents in the morning, i just wake up, do my thing and leave the house

Greet them after eating, for wetin undecided

whats your business about how people greet their parents?

Lol
Re: How Do You Normally Greet Your Parent? by Dreloaded(f): 9:32pm On Mar 05, 2008
amsky, you should have him change his "hey" to Good morning or whichever.

relatives wont stand for that "hey" nonsense and they will look at YOU for not teaching him/her or maybe it's just a yoruba thing.
Re: How Do You Normally Greet Your Parent? by Busta(f): 9:43pm On Mar 05, 2008
don't have to go down on my kneels but I usually address them in the morning as:
-Morning dad, morning mum

chikena!

I can say watsup to ma mum but not my dad, he'll beat the living daylight outta my body. even as old as i am. My dad ain't no soft meat oh.
even sometimes when me and him are both chatting on YIM or MSN, i can't use slangs or shortforms and God help me if i spell something wrong. . . i can literally feel the tension from my end of the chat.

Re: How Do You Normally Greet Your Parent? by yinkuso08: 8:43pm On Apr 29, 2008
First time seeing them in the morning.

Both my knees on the floor in my yoruba dialect. Still do it till this day, even to my in-laws, I heard from a source that they were surprised (in a good way) the first time I greeted them like that. Even their daughter doesn't.

My older son is now 3.5yrs old, he greets us the same way by postrating and then we hug him and rub his head like lil monkey afterwards ( i remember my dad used to do that to my siblings and I too)
