¿Te parece bien?

How could I translate into English "¿te parece bien?" (when I'm reproching somebody for something)? For instance:

¿Te parece bien lo que estás haciendo? ¿Sabes el daño que haces?
¿Te parece bien decir tantas palabrotas?

Thanks

Do you think it's a good idea?
Do you think it's funny?
Do you think it's clever?

¿Do you think it's right to say so many badwords?

También ¿se lo puede para pedir si algo es correcto?

- ¿Mi frase te parece bien?
(Les gustan los lago para refrescarse)
- Me parece bien

Your translations are very closer.

But I have another idea.


Do you believe a good way to do it.?

I believe that is more lager but anyhow it's understanding.

Please I don't want disappointed with my translation.

Sí, me parece bien

Thanks everybody.

And another question about the same idea: ¿No te da vergüenza? How could I translate this sentence? For instance:

¿Te parece bien lo que has hecho? ¿No te da vergüenza?

Do you think it's funny what you've done? Don't you feel ashamed? (or shame on you!)



Thank you again

Sí mi amiga, pero pienso que el contexto es importante

Después del hombre muerte alguien - Don´t you feel ashamed? - "no te da vergüenza"

Una mujer después de llevar tacones altos y cayó en la calle - Don´t you feel embarrassed? - "no te da vergüenza"

Espero que tenga razón mis frases y que te ayuden

Tiene que dar idea de enfado, de estar muy enfadado.

So, "don't you feel ashamed? " is correct, isn't it?

Thanks, Bob

We've crossed, Elaina. I like your sentence: You should be ashamed of yourself!

Thanks a lot
