It's really no secret that most children think their parents are super uncool.

Because of course they are.

Parents didn't have lives or dreams of their own before they had children, right? How could they possibly ever have been fun?

That's sarcasm, by the way. Most people grow out of this attitude, and it usually disappears by the time a kid gets through their teenage years, when pretty much anything their parents do turns their faces red with embarrassment.

But suppose you, the parents, wanted to embarrass your kids anyway, say by reviving a slang term or two?

People shared their thoughts after Redditor the-tinman asked the online community,

"What are some slang terms a 50 year old dad can say to his daughter to embarrass her?"

Ummm...

"Just say "whatup fam?" Then when they get mad yell "worldstar."

Do I even want to know what the hell "worldstar" is? Ugh. I'm old now.

This is actually sweet.

"I am taking my 14 year old daughter and her friends to an Anime convention. They are all dressing up to cosplay anime characters. I decided to dress up as Indiana Jones, And I guess that is the worst thing in the world."

For them? Yeah. Bonus points if you quote some awesome Indy lines.

"When something surprises you..."

"When something surprises you, say you are “shook."

And when you're really, really surprised, say that you're "shooketh."

Say what?

"Wuss poppin' Jimbo?"

LordMalgus

How about you don't but we'll say that you did?

"Wait..."

"Wait till she’s in an argument with your spouse, or being slightly verbose in a public place, pull out your phone and shout “world star!"

There it is again! Do I really need to start adding this to my vocabulary? Because I really don't want to.

Bruh!

"Say bruh after literally every sentence."

Your mother and i have decided we are getting a divorce. Bruh.

Like that?

"He did things like..."

"My dad never used slang terms. He did things like ask if I applied my rash cream and if my gum disease was bothering me in front of people."

This sounds like it definitely impacted your ability to get dates.

"Ugh..."

"Ugh, my 60 year old mother loves to say things are ”the puff daddy” when she thinks something is awesome or superior. So you should probably point out things that you also find to be the “puff daddy."

[deleted]

She knows exactly what she's doing.

An evil genius.

"I used..."

"I used the "You ain't woke fam. I'm too lit" on my 15 yr old daughter. I'm 46. Her exact response, walking by without looking at me. "I don't even think you understand what you are saying."

moby1kenobi

Plot twist: But you did.

You totally did.

"I'm partial to saying..."

"I’m partial to saying “I’m finna pop a goog” instead of “I’m going to google this thing." I’ve received mixed responses."

alpha11411

Gee, I wonder why?

Hmmm...

"My dad..."

"My dad tells me to stay woke."

Daddy sounds bomb.

And there you have it. If you have a kid, they better watch out. But do report back. The results are undoubtedly hilarious.

TK/Unsplahs

Parents love to brag about their kids, and who could blame them?

If their pride and joy wins a school art contest or places first at a sporting event, any accolade warrants boasting rights.

But what if kids are so extremely proud of their own accomplishments, big or small, and want to go around and exaggerate their victories, who are we to hold them back?

Sometimes, we truly never know how lucky we are.

Particularly when we might be disappointed to have missed out on something, only to learn after the fact that it was something of a miracle we did.

As the saying goes, we "dodged a bullet".

This could be for something trivial, like being late for a concert owing to traffic, only to find out it was a real stinker, or having to cancel a trip, only to discover how terrible the weather was the whole time you would have been there.

In other cases, the bullet you dodged may have been an actual life or death situation.

Teachers are often regarded as heroes.

Though they might not possess superpowers, or put their lives in danger on an ongoing basis, teachers have a way of influencing the lives of others in ways they can never imagine.

Of course, there are teachers who do literally save lives.

As they are the teachers who help students who are being abused at home out of toxic and dangerous situations.

Doing so without ever being explicitly told, but rather by noticing their students behavior, or reading between the lines in their work.
