At 32, women turn into their moms

London: It`s the age of 32 when women start talking to their children with phrases their own mothers used, a survey has revealed.

Nearly 40 per cent of the respondents admitted using their mother`s expressions and a quarter even claimed to talk this way with their partners. These include, "What did your last slave die of?" and "You don`t know you`re born".

The poll of 1,000 men and women found that worrying more, stocking up on groceries and going to bed early are also signs, the `Daily Express` reported.

Behavioural expert Judi James said: "You can vow never to say or use the traits you associate with your parents but the chances are they`re ticking away like a time bomb in your subconscious.

"And given the same set of­circumstances, you`ll find them emerging and there`s very little you can do to avoid it.
