If your child is lying down and you want them to get in the sitting position, how do you ask them to in an informal/everyday language? If you could provide more than one way, it would be appreciated.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.


Just a "Sit up" will do. See simple things in simple ways.

    since you asked for more than one way, I would add the following: "sit up, I said", "sit up, dang it", "when are you going to sit up?", and, finally, "if you don't sit up I will make sure you really don't want to sit up" – JeffSahol Aug 9 '13 at 12:39
