    Unhappy Putting a positive spin on things

    How do you put a positive spin on these sentences?

    "You'd better stop that cheeky answering back young man"

    "Scoffing down that food so fast you'll get indigestion!"

    "That friend of yours he's nothing but a disobedient no hoper!"

    I really need help.

    Is this an assignment? What is the intention of the assignment?

    you need to rewrite them so that they sound positive, and not rude.

    "you'd better stop that cheeky answering back young man"
    i would prefer it if you were polite to me, and did not answer back.

    "scoffing down that food so fast you'll get indigestion!"
    it's better for you if you take your time to eat your food.
    etc.
    "that friend of yours he's nothing but a disobedient no hoper!"
