Question: What kind of expression would a Chinese mother use for the little child during the day, for example, wake up, you are late, eat your breakfast ,etc..

 

Answer: That depends on the mother’s mood.

 

If she's in good mood, then

宝贝(bǎo bèi),快醒醒(kuài xǐng xǐng) honey, wake up.
你要迟到了(nǐ yào chí dào le)You'll be late.
吃早饭吧(chī zǎo fàn ba)Eat your breakfast.


If she’s in bad mood and want to yell at the child, then she may say:

小子(xiǎo zi),快起来(kuài qǐ lái)Boy, get up!
你又要迟到了(nǐ yòu yào chí dào le)Or you’ll late again.
吃你的早餐吧(chī nǐ de zǎo cān ba)Eat your breakfast (and shut up).

    Thanks for your attention. Well, I'm totally aware of the difference between "妈妈" and "麻麻". Coz someone told me that 麻麻 is hot now. It is a cute way to say 妈妈, you know, as if a baby is calling "mama".

    >>麻麻的宝贝(má má de bǎo bèi)是世界上最乖的宝贝(shì shì jiè shàng zuì guāi de bǎo bèi)。
    是“妈妈的宝贝”,不是“麻麻的宝贝”, :)
