What makes a cool parent? Do you want to be one? Are you one?
I've been told I am one.........but flattery gets you everything!
My parents are reasonably cool Cooler than most I'd say. By that,
I mean they trust me, and let me do almost anything
I'd like to be a cool parent too, but to do it, I need kids...
You;d have to ask our kidz! They are always quite happy to include us in all of their lives. I could confidently say that they are also our friends, as are many of their friends. I even manage to surprise them sometimes with the type of music I listen to, if that makes me cool, then, so be it!
I know the kids are comfortable here, and include me in stuff, and talk to me - which is all good.
My parents are dead cool.
I've just been asked to look at one of CD's essays. I'm chuffed.
Well, it helps that I taught a very similar module to the one she's doing, at the same institution... But yes, is cool and I am pleased.
Well, not really - but it's great to have her friends round and be able to discuss what they're studying with them - one of her close friends is reading philosophy And last semester they were all making jokes about being brains in vats.
So far, I'm a cool parent. My son and I go to cafe's/coffee houses and chill out while having some quality chat time.
We go see live performances (folk music). Soon we will attempt going to live theatre.
I bring Roo to Hot Topic to browse/shop. He's 5 and he loves it. (it's a kind of alternative store that lots of rebelling teens/twenties go to)
We play Pooh Sticks down the road.
I go sledding with my son. Yes, I actually get on the sled with him.
I do freehand temporary tattoo's on my son (and myself). (tattoo pens)
My business is selling kids' books. I'm my best customer.
I bought myself and my son iPods.
My son tells me I'm cool.
