My daughter has taken charge at her local School of Rock, and is working every live gigshe can get her hands on. Seeing how she's not driving yet, I too have beenaccompanying her to these gigs. I love the atmosphere, it's very hip and chill. Weusually go after work, so I always make a mental note to wear my cooler clothes on this day, so I'm not sticking out while I wait to be the loudest one to cheer my kid on.
This crowd is Gen Y to the max, lots of ﬂannel, jeans and Tom's shoes. Unusual hats and hair bows are the hottest, distinct fashion accessory, and coffee is their drink ofchoice. What mom could have a problem with this? I hear a lot of inaccurate cliches when it comes to teens from people who don't have them. The teens I come across are smart and seeking balance, plus excellence, in their passion. They are also quick tovolunteer for an organization, take part in a school play, or to help one and other. Suremoms need recognition for the grueling schedule, but they also need to be removedfrom assumption. Raising kids takes a lot, yes, but the good stuff needs to beapplauded as many are raising some really great kids. Don't be so surprised; and don'timmediately jump to the call from teenage centered negative story; this takes away what's really up inside her house. Our future leaders are coming from somewhere.
