A few words that usually parents use to communicate with their children

mamam
Meaning : Eat
Example : Come on now girl, mamam time. Mamam, mamam!


Ma mam .. Ma mam .. Ma ma mia ..

O’ok
meaning
: Shit
Example : O’ok … O’ok … (The mom will be repeating the O’ok sounds till the baby finish doing business)


Kenot O’ok liw, you go away first …

Pssss
Meaning : Pee
Example : Pssss … Pssss (The mom will be repeating the Pssss sounds till the baby finish doing business)


Is it “psyyyyy .. or Pssss? I forgot the word” kenot tahan liw

Sometimes I just wonder, why is that they have to use these words of unknown origin to make the children understand. Why not saying the correct words? “Kalau nak melentur buluh biarlah dari rebungnya” Isn’t that what they say?
