 ad·mo·ni·tion /ˌædməˈnɪʃən/

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Ad·mo·ni·tion n.  Gentle or friendly reproof; counseling against a fault or error; expression of authoritative advice; friendly caution or warning.
 Syn: -- Admonition, Reprehension, Reproof.
 Usage: Admonition is prospective, and relates to moral delinquencies; its object is to prevent further transgression. Reprehension and reproof are retrospective, the former being milder than the latter. A person of any age or station may be liable to reprehension in case of wrong conduct; but reproof is the act of a superior. It is authoritative fault-finding or censure addressed to children or to inferiors.
