    5) no more arguing - прекрати спорить
    6) clean up (as in clean your room, put your things away) - Приберись <в комнате>

    арахисовое масло
    2) pick a fruit (selection, choose one)
    выбери фрукт
    3) get in the car
    садись в машину
    4) fasten your seatbelt
    пристегнись (пожалуйста)
    5) no more arguing
    хватит спорить (достаточно спорить)
    6) clean up (as in clean your room, put your things away)
    наведи порядок в комнате, or simply приберись
    7) roller blades
    ролики (роликовые коньки)
    Would you like to ride a horse?
    Хочешь покататься на лошади (на лошадке)?
    9) are you full (after eating, have you had enough?)
    ты наелся?(boy)
    ты наелась? (girl)
    вы наелись? (both)

    10) play nicely! (to a group of kids)
    it's a hard one.. Mina are always arguing, so I say "не ругайтесь!" But you might mean that they are abusive, so it would be "не деритесь!"
    11) I'm sorry, I apologize
    я виноват, я извиняюсь
    12) time-out (to a child that needs to sit and think about what they did wrong - how is this handled in Russia?
    тайм аут - that could be understood by kids, but some explanation should follow. It is not common concept in Russia.
