I’m so uncool!

Uncool must be the new cool.
Great topic Kristen. Looking ahead, I’m so torn about how I would handle situations like that. I don’t have kids (yet?), but I always think about which parent I’d be. There is such a huge gap between your parents and parents today. Its gotta be tough. It would be hard for me to not put myself in my kid’s shoes (at the party). I remember how mortified I would be whenever it was my folks blowing the whistle. But, it was always with good reason — we did a lot of dumb shit. Looking back, there were many times where it was probably a good thing that someone intervened. I think you’re right on with how you’re handling it. Its a fine line always. Kids need to be social, but at what expense? Good luck~
