Some of us wish we were cool enough for a Honda minivan.

Our kids think we've been this boring our whole lives! Sigh...

Just wait till they get older. My son's friends consider me a cool person. Since I do not talk down to anyone they listen to my POV and take what they need from it. Respect your ability to parent good people & that respect comes back to you. Besides you should not be a cool parent. Kids need boundaries with some freedom to choose. They need to develop coping skills otherwise we have failed our children & society. I did not become cool until I became a parent. Blessings

It's like a deadhead sticker on a Cadillac.

"Besides you should not be a cool parent."
This was Billy Ray Cyrus's mistake, which he now bitterly regrets.

Hey, that's Joan Jett in the picture.
OBAMA is to JACQUELINE FUCHS, ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER as JOAN JETT is to JACKIE FOX, RUNAWAYS’ BASS PLAYER
Jackie Fuchs played bass in Joan Jett’s first band and also went to Harvard Law School with Obama. In a 2008 column at Huffington Post she remarks on how their parallel paths to fame. She finds them similar in that each aspired to greatness and consciously adopted the mannerisms associated with same. She knew Joan Jett before and after; Obama, when she first met him, had already made this decision. A quote:
"One of our classmates once famously noted that you could judge just how pretentious someone’s remarks in class were by how high they ranked on the 'Obamanometer,' a term that lasted far longer than our time at law school. Obama didn’t just share in class – he pontificated. He knew better than everyone else in the room, including the teachers. Or maybe even he knew he didn’t know, but knew that the leader of the free world had to be able to convince others that he did."
As the Who song “Eminence Front” said, “It’s a put on.”
