    this gesture

    I've been looking for a name of this gesture that is usually made by adults when telling kids they're not supposed to do something; this sort of moving your pointing finger from left to right.
    Is it shaking your finger at smb? or waving?

    thanks in advance; tried to make it as clear as possible, sorry if I failed

    Shake your finger at someone, wag your finger at someone -- both of these work.
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    It means "no don't do that"~It's a loving way of showing a family member that's younger than you that something is wrong.
    Feel free to go anywhere you like but remember, your NEVER alone.....
