Rapper-turned-actress Queen Latifah has a lowered tolerance of rude children, after watching a pal give birth recently.

The OSCAR-nominated CHICAGO star supported her friend in the delivery room, and was astonished by the experience.

She says, "It was incredible. But now I see where they get that term, 'I brought you in this world, I'll take you out!' You can't push a 10-pound baby out and hear backtalk from 'em 15 years later!

"You never forget that experience. Mothers know. It's like, 'What? You don't wanna do the dishes? Do you know what I did to get you in this world? I brought you in the world, I'll take your a** out!'"
