It what may have been the most lopsided vote in history, dads have been voted the most embarrassing parent by their kids because of their bad fashion and even the car they drive! I think my Dad was a pretty cool guy, even though he drove a red station wagon the entire time I was growing up. Once the old ‘red wagon’ died he would go right out and buy another old red hoopty station wagon to replace it! But this new survey says the eight in ten 13-21 year olds cringe at their dad, and the car he drives, and a third of youngsters even make their dad drop them off round the corner at school! Other things about Dad that ‘tweens’ find most embarrassing are…..
Bad hairdos, dodgy specs, high waistbands and wearing socks with sandals are among the embarrassing father fashion crimes.
What about the Moms who go out with curlers in their hair, with a bathrobe on when driving kids to school? Is that ‘not so bad?” Some parents will even deliberately try to embarrass the kids, just for laughs!
What does your husband do that embarrasses your kids?
