Parents that are trying to be like their kids I think are just trying to have a better bond with their kids. They do whatever they see their kids doing and it doesn’t usually end up as well as they expected it to.
Sometimes the parents aren’t good role models when they try this because they send the wrong message towards their kids. But it’s not always a bad thing that they act that way because maybe the kid doesn’t get affected by it that much and they just think of that as their parents. Kids always say that they wish their parents would understand them but I don’t think tin that way.
I think that parents should try to be a little cool but not take it over the top. So they should be able to do some things but not as much as their children.
