Hi, there

Please, help me

If I am on the subway with my son and he is standing by/in the door(which preposition?), and someones wants to get off the train, what could I say to my son?

"/Step aside"
"Move over/aside"
"Make way"



Thank you so much!

    I'd probably say "Please don't block the door" or "Please let people get off." Then I'd let him figure out where to move in order to do that.
    I agree. And with a younger child, I might say "Please let these nice people get off."

    But and between one of those?

    "Make way so the people can pass"
    "Move/Step aside so the people can pass"
    "Move over so the people can pass"

    Please
