Laugh Out Loud at Your Library - Parenting

From 13 is the new 18 by Beth Harpaz:
While I am often shocked by the way thirteen-year-old girls dress, there have also been occasions when I have been moved to genuinely compliment a girl on what she's wearing. But my attempts to be nice never go over well. When a forty-something-year-old woman tells a thirteen-year-old girl, "Oh, I like your shoes!" or "Nice earrings!" she might as well be saying "You are the most uncool person on earth. You look like you just walked out of a dressing room at Wal-Mart. You should strip on the spot, burn what you're wearing, and cover yourself with a sackcloth.
Do your parents talk with your kids, and chuckle about how happy they are that your kids are acting the way you did? And how you deserve it? And how they knew it would all come back to you?

Fortunately, it's not just you. Everyone's kids are conspiring to make them remember every "teenage" thing they ever did.
