Obedience is the Key!

Are you a parent? If you aren't a parent, you had one. What would you say is the most common disciplinary phrase said by all parents at least once in their parenting career? Is it, "No!" or "Come here!" or what about my all time favorite I've heard parents say over and over, Because I said so!" That one always got me as a child.
