This thread is for all the positive parental encounters that just blow your mind. Those, "Did that really just happen!?" moments in which parents play the cool role rather than the douche. Here's my most recent... Over the past summer, my mother decided she'd prefer me smoking buddha than cigarettes... so, she lets my older sister and i smoke on the porch whenever we want. Yesterday's event won the prize though. I'd just gotten home and my mom and step dad were out grocery shopping, so i packed a bowl for my sister and i. Mid-bowl, my parents come home and we're still on the porch. I got the last hit and right as i was blowing out the smoke my mom comes out and looks at my sister and i, sees the bowl in my hand and the smoke coming out of my mouth, and she says, "We're having breakfast for dinner. How much do you guys want?" We tell her and then my step dad comes out, sees my bowl as well and says, "I love your haircut!" The four of us start talking about dinner, while my bowl in just in my lap. Everyone goes inside, and i go blow out the bowl. I walk in the house, bowl in hand the whole time, and casually pass my mom on the way to my room. Five minutes later she comes into my room and asks me if my homework is finished and i tell her not yet and the only thing she says is, "Maybe you shouldn't get stoned before you do your homework..." Hahah, through the whole sequence of events i had to fight so hard not to smile at how completely awesome my parents were being. A year ago, this would have definitely not flown. THEN! Today, i got a citation for leaving school, and my mom gets me out of basically all of my punishments with the school (like not being able to park on campus- how ridiculous is that!). We get home, and my mom is a little pissed considering it wasn't my first suspension. So guess what she says as my only punishment, "From now on, you can't get stoned until after you're finished with your homework." I was expecting the generic no car, grounded, no phone, no computer, or some variation of the few. It may not sound too amazing, but it blew my mind how cool she was being. All i have to say is, life ain't too bad at the home right now. All parents should just be like this. So what's your awesome parent story?
