I'm just me if that's not cool enough for other people then oh well. My son thinks I'm cool, that's all that matters.

Yes. Sometimes I cry myself to sleep because I'm not cool enough. I drown my sorrows in drugs and alcohol.

I typically don't speak to people around me so I could careless what they think :)

No. I am really not into that persona anyway. I think anyone who tries too hard to be the "cool parent" ends up looking silly.

Quoting o.0:

pfffft.  I don't care if they think I'm cool or not.  Their opinion of me means exactly nothing.

Right. If they think I'm cool then they may be compelled to converse and I'm not fond of socializing with the general public :P

I voted no.  I am a "cool" mom so to speak.  I love spending time with my kids.  I take them to concerts, we watch shows together, we chat.  We goof off.  But better believe I will bust their asses when they get out of line :)

No I don't, I honestly worry most about raising well mannered kids. I've really never thought about how cool I am, but my kids are still young, the oldest is 5.
