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.


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
