Shame on you?

How would you convey the English expression, "Shame on you!"? Or, "Shame on him for eating the last cookie."?

Hi Melisa,

I don't think you would say -

Honte à toi/vous! in French it sounds far too direct.

You might say -

Quelle honte! = How shameful!

or

Tu devrais avoir honte / Vous devriez avoir honte! You should be ashamed of yourself/yourselves

Hope this helps!
