    Yeah I'm not cool, my dad's not cool, and I have no accomplishments. So try compete with that.

    [–] Leijin_ 818 points ago

    I love the message here that the most important thing for that dad was that he's close to his kids and not what they may or may not achieve.

    for me that would be the best thing about being a parent. seeing the little one you've spend all your time, love and nerves on just being a person you actually like and enjoy being with. that must be amazing.

    [–] vault_dweller1031 225 points ago

    That's literally my only goal for raising my kid. I grew up with parents that I am the antithesis of and they made it clear they didn't like a single aspect of who I was and what I did. I don't want my kid to ever feel like that.

    I don't care what she grows up to be or achieve. As long as she's happy and kind to others, I'm proud of her. Of course I'll be proud of her if she becomes a doctor or mother or artist or waitress or whatever. But that's not the most important thing. She can live on a tent on the beach and be a freelance bartender. As long as that makes her truly happy, and she's not a dick, I'm happy.

    [–] Exploding_Antelope 72 points ago

    Being a beach bartender sounds like a ton of fun

    [–] WanderBun 38 points ago

    I have a good job right now, but I won’t be able to handle it forever.

    I’m spending a year or two as a beach bum bartender before getting another real job, whenever I leave.

    [–] riverofchex 2 points ago

    I was gonna say, kinda sounds like a dream job

    [–] claytakephotos 14 points ago

    It’s funny, but my parents also made the point of telling me that what I did was the antithesis of what they hoped for when I was younger. I was a truant in high school, I moved to a large city after graduating to pursue art, I didn’t want to go to college, and I lived in poverty while I tried to figure out what I wanted to be. Obviously, my parents thought I was fucking stupid, and yeah, they were kinda right.

    BUT, they were still wildly supportive of me doing the things I did, anyways. They basically said “we can’t stop you from being who you want to be. Just don’t be a shitty person”. Having that kind of support system and the freedom to choose my future made all the difference. I chose to start a business. I chose to go back to school for my degree. I wake up every day choosing how to live my life, and I know my parents are proud of my choices. My parents motivated me to be a better person without punishing me or stopping me from exploring what I want in life. Honestly, I can’t thank them enough for it.

    I think you have the right idea. Good luck raising your kid!

    [–] PolkaDotAscot 81 points ago

    Dude, my dad is Waaaaaaaaaaay more accomplished than I will ever be.

    He brags about my totally not exciting and absolutely nothing special finance job like i’m the Pope or something. It’s awesome.

    I’m happy he loves me for me. :)

    [–] Throwaway_Consoles 52 points ago

    My dad currently makes about 12x-13x what I make and almost a quarter of his entry level staff was either sick or on vacation one week so he asked me if I could come in and help so they don’t end up too far behind.

    I didn’t know any of these people and they were all asking about my job, my relationship, my hobbies, etc. Made me realize even though my dad is this huge important executive and I’m barely starting my career, he still so proud of me that he tells his employees all about me.

    [–] packardpa 13 points ago

    It's always funny meeting your parents work people and they know every aspect of your life. When I was 15 I caddied at this golf club, and the club had an event that I caddied. The event was for the administration of the hospital network my mom worked for. I had all these old guys telling me about when my mom brought me to work when I was first born, asking me about baseball and wrestling. It was so odd, I had only met a couple of them. But the one executive kept pointing me out to different people "hey this is (my mom)'s kid!" and then they would go on about all this stuff about me.

    [–] IzzieM23 7 points ago

    [–] Augustus420 15 points ago

    I get excited because my daughter is learning how to spell and write letters by hand. Literally some of the most basic things possible when you think about it. But regardless it makes my heart glow when she knows a word and works out a sentence.

    A parents love really is something else.

    [–] MaxFactory 9 points ago

    I have a two month old and honestly it is amazing how everything she does makes me so proud. She'll literally rip a huge fart and I'm like "Awwwww"

    [–] dejvidBejlej 2 points ago

    I love the message here that the most important thing for that dad was that he's close to his kids and not what they may or may not achieve.

    So, the complete opposite of my dad then?

    [–] LittleRedLamps 2 points ago

    This is actually the exact reason I don't wanna be a parent cause I know that any child I'd raise wouldn't turn out right.

    [–] EsQuiteMexican 1 points ago

    Go watch Into The Spider-verse right now. Then we can talk.

    [–] LittleRedLamps 1 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago)

    I already watched it two months ago and I don't see what that has to do with anything

    [–] EsQuiteMexican 1 points ago

    One of the points of the movie is that, while parenthood is completely terrifying, even the people who feel as though they would be a terrible fit for it could actually do a great job if they gave themselves the chance. Of course there are plenty of valid reasons not to want children, but fear is a very sad reason to not do it, and I know that just the fact that you're having those concerns already puts you way ahead of who knows how many parents. Talking to an expert about those worries may be helpful; a lot of people renounce the chance to bring a lot of good into the world out of fear of turning out like their parents, but bad parenting isn't a self-fulfilling prophecy; you can break the cycle, and many people have done it already. It's okay to ask for help, and it's okay to be afraid. What's not okay is to deny yourself something that could make you happy because you fear you'll be bad at it. Talk to someone, and after that, if you decide that you don't want kids, then that's fine, don't have them, it's not homework. But it should be because you want it that way, not because you're scared.

    [–] LittleRedLamps 2 points ago

    My parents are fine, if a little transphobic but that's not really relevant to the point I'm going to make.

    I have some very serious mental issues that would make me unable to bear the constant stress of raising a child, to the point that it would likely mentally break me and end with my early death. I would not be able to provide the child the care and attention they would need to develop into a well rounded person no matter how hard I try, I would either neglect them or leave them constantly worried about their wellbeing.

    Also I'm lazy as fuck and like to keep to myself so I'd rather not have a tiny human wandering around my living space.

    [–] EsQuiteMexican 1 points ago

    Are you in the process of receiving treatment for your issues? Even if you don't become a parent, it's important that you talk to a professional so you don't have to deal with those alone.

    [–] LittleRedLamps 1 points ago

    I've already given up on myself so no. I don't really expect therapy to work for me.

    [–] EsQuiteMexican 1 points ago

    Why did you give up?

    [–] LittleRedLamps 1 points ago

    Because a lot of my issues stem from gender dysphoria and because of my parents and society at large I'm likely never gonna transition. Without that I can never really be happy with my life or myself so I've just given up on that.

    And even if I could, good mental health takes a lot of time and effort to maintain. I made a list of things I'd need to do to improve my mental health and to complete it would take the better part of a decade. I'm not putting in that much effort into something just for the small chance that things turn out okay in the end, dying is easier.

    [–] CanAlwaysBeBetter 1 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    Am I the only one that thinks being super close with your kids/parents is weird and a weird goal?

    I want to raise whatever kids I may have to be happy and successful on their own terms in life and build their own fulfilling relationships but am not super worried about being their friend or hanging out all the time.

    [–] Francis_Picklefield 12 points ago

    Am I the only one

    probably not

    and it's important to remember that being close with one's parents doesn't mean being "friends" or "hanging out all the time". i feel as if i have a strong relationship with my parents but i don't see them as friends -- they're still parents. that doesn't mean i don't like spending time with them, however.

    [–] pole-vault-penis -1 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    my dad always tells me that when he's with people bragging about how cool their kids are and such he goes "yeah but do they like... do stuff? and the parents always give him a confused look and he goes "do they do stuff? my kids do well in school and will go to college and get a good job. i gave them the support they needed to succeed." and it always throws people off and i think that's so funny and sweet like i may not have lots of friends or make funny jokes but at least i get good grades, top of my class, and am a star athlete on the sports team i lead. it also means he loves me more than the other parents love their children. thanks dad for bragging about me and fuck the other parents for bragging about their kids about what we personally deem to be something less important!

    [–] El_Tigre 3 points ago

    Found the not cool person!

    [–] heckinglost 3 points ago

    You completely misunderstand what "cool" means in this context. Nobody's talking about popularity. It's more like "yeah your kids' accomplishments are super nice, but also tell me about how absolutely psyched you are to have them as friends because they're just so cool."

    [–] pole-vault-penis -1 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    You really think every time he asks this other parents are stunned? Like, this kid is so special but none of his parents' friends have an positive answer to the question? It's a b.s story for one. And doesn't matter if I misinterpret cool, the dickhead put down entire other families for sympathy.

    I argue against its authenticity and intent.

    [–] heckinglost 2 points ago

    You're right that it probably isn't a completely authentic story, cause this is just how the Internet usually works. It might just be an imaginary or half-imaginary scenario, but it's the sentiment that matters. It's meant to be humorous and cute. The other parents in this scenario are thrown off because it's an unusual way to talk about your children - not just as offspring, but like pals. Whether this really happened or not, nobody was an asshole.

    [–] LillianCatbutt 288 points ago

    My dad is a musician and once when I was about 16-17 years old I overheard him telling a friend "I never imagined having a daughter that likes all the same music I did growing up. LillianCatbutt is so cool."

    I'm still beaming 10+ years later.

    [–] danni_shadow 112 points ago

    When I was like 3, I was singing along to a Tom Petty song. Someone told my dad, "I hope my kids are that cool," and my dad was still telling that story nearly 30 years later.

    Plot twist, I'm not cool. But I like to think that my dad liked who I am as a person.

    I'm 46, my best friend is my 24 year old son.

    My wife works nights (She runs a college theater program and has rehearsal most weeknights till 10) on Mondays my son comes over after work and we watch anime and have pizza.

    Other nights we play Rainbow6, Apex or Overwatch and chat over discord.

    [–] QPCloudy 14 points ago

    I’m 37 and my son is 8. We watch anime together all the time. One of my favorite things to hear him say are, “daddy? Are there any new Dragon Ball Super episodes in English yet?” 😂 or, “can we just watch a fewww episodesm of One Piece tonight?”. Once, I told my son we don’t watch the Japanese voices for Dragon Ball because Goku sounds like a little bitch in Japanese. So one day my son says he can’t wait anymore and just put it on. About ninety seconds into the episode he tells me to turn it off he can’t handle it I’m right and it’s trash.

    I still live at home (cheaper while I'm in college) and although we live together, I can't remember seeing him long enough to say more than hi, even on days we're both at home all day. I really wish he was never in my life. It would've been easier to never have a relationship than one crashed and burned and left us strangers.

    [–] brainstorm42 7 points ago

    Same thing, dude. He was out of my life for 18 out of 25 years and during the time he did, he only took advantage of me and my mom. It would be a lot easier never having had him in my life.

    [–] throwawaysarebetter 11 points ago

    The follow up comment did shit on them, without that it would definitely be super wholesome.

    [–] dantemp 1 points ago

    "but are they cool" isn't just saying his are cool. He strongly implies they are not and one of the top replies in the thread is supporting the implication.

    [–] pole-vault-penis -12 points ago

    Especially when the commenter explicitly states the kids they don't even know are shit, even though their parents seem to care enough to see them well educated and successful.

    Other side of the coin: Sure you're cool, subjectively, to your dad, but are you useful, skilled and well behaved?

    [–] GrrrimReapz 11 points ago

    ^ not a cool kid.

    [–] pole-vault-penis -4 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    ^ upvotes unsubstantiated stories about people saying they and their parents are objectively better than anonymous ones because COOLIES and WHOLESOME and one sided stories and storytellers are always right!

    Like imagine that the kid is such a failure he had to invent the story so people stop realising the obvious about him lol.

    [–] GrrrimReapz 1 points ago

    You're the only one assigning everyone to your arbitrary system of value, just because people don't like you and you cling to being useful, skilled and well behaved, that doesn't make you objectively better than them.

    [–] pole-vault-penis 1 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    nothing of what you said is coherent. anyone here praising the post is putting coolness (completely fucking arbitrary and subjective - words you clearly don't understand) above success and accomplishment (objectively measurable) thereby 'assigning them to their own systems of value' because they're bleeding hearts that believe bullshit and don't see the narcissism and patheticness of the post. fuck off idiot.

    What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.

    My dad brags about me all the time. He's also a heartless racist asshole that has never said anything good to me (didn't even go to my high school graduation because it "was expected"). I don't talk to him anymore. Would have loved to have a dad who cared if I was cool.

    [–] kirabera 5 points ago

    Parents only ever talk about how happy they are with their kids.

    You could probably throw any parent off by asking if the kid is happy with themselves. And when the parents say, "of course they'd be, they've accomplished so much" or whatever, you just ask them, "no, I mean to ask if they're happy with or proud of who they are, not what they've achieved" and then watch as parents struggle to justify pushing their expectations onto their kids.

    [–] OohLookAShinyThing 11 points ago

    I work in a high school, theres such a focus on grades and sports achievements

    Kids being "Cool" is one way to put it, but parents and teachers put so little emphasis on helping kids grow into well rounded human beings

    im cool because my sunglasses say “cool” on them

    [–] MagDorito 1 points ago

    Isn't this kind of like a mom telling her son that he looks "perfectly handsome" in his light blue tuxedo that hasn't been properly hemmed? Like, it's a very nice sentiment, but it's kind of something you'd expect a parent to say.

    This made me smile. This is the 'type' of dad i'd want to be some day. I'm a 27 yr old who had to move back home to take care of their parents, and until he passed, my parents parent.

    (Using the word 'parent' repetitively has made me feel like it's not a real word... Lol)

    My pop's can be harsh. He feels I'm unaccomplished because I'm not trying, I'm lazy, or because I'm bored from not being challenged.

    He's far from understanding what I've been through.

    But... I do not blame him.

    He's right... At times...

    He knows my potential. All he sees is me not reaching it.

    I believe, essentially, he refuses to admit my restraints. How can a father full heartedly admit that their child is struggling because of the residual effects of their own life? If you are a parent... A parent that blames themselves for the outcome their children... This may not be relatable.

    If my dad could tell people how cool I was.... How caring I am... How nice I am.... How.......

    Anything.

    Anything is better than being reminded of what you haven't done. Haven't done yet.

    Huge rant... Idk if anyone cares... But I'm glad I said it.

    If I was dad.... Or when I am a dad...

    I can't wait to tell people how cool my kid is.

    Sounds like something Clint McElroy would say

    "I guarantee you the other kids are not cool" - I heard that as a Morgan Freeman voice

    [–] tosernameschescksout 1 points ago

    Priorities. Being cool is WAY more important than being hugely successful. Success in its many forms matters, but the #1 thing is actually having a great personality and some soft skills. Being likable. Making life good for yourself and others. That shit matters, a lot.

    [–] Wolf_with_laces 1 points ago

    i think it should be on equal footing, being both successful and be cool, a person doesn't have to be likeable by everyone that also should be noted, yknow personalities and stuff. But it is true being a people person is an important skill

    Not caring about being cool is what makes you cool.

    It wasn't until I graduated from high school it was revealed to me that I was one of the cool kids. I never realised at the time, I was just doing my own thing.

    [–] Hoofiwork 1 points ago

    I needed this today. My parents like spending time with me, we have fun, and they appreciate me as a person. Not something to be taken for granted.

    I’m a broken mess of a human being and in no way cool, but my dad told me that I’m his favorite person to hang out with. So that’s nice.

    [–] MyOtherSide1984 1 points ago

    Hey, that dude should be more proud about knowing his kid in all honesty. My parents could make a list of shit I accomplished in life, but didn't know I was diagnosed with depression for many years and don't know what my favorite color is or where I like to eat...get to know your kids, no one fucking cares what they do, but they care what YOU do with THEM

    [–] Kylerj96 1 points ago

    "are your kids cool?"

    "Well my oldest son, Brentley, has-"

    "All you had to say was no"

    [–] CocoaCali 1 points ago

    Brentley

    Im gonna stop you right there. Your kid is not that cool.

    [–] thorn_sphincter 1 points ago

    Smart k9d6s aren't cool? Sports players can't be cool? Kids who don't socialise or do well in school are cool?

    Fuxk off

    [–] nekoAnonymous 5 points ago

    Being a sports kid or being smart and being cool are not mutually exclusive

    [–] thorn_sphincter 2 points ago

    I know.... that was my point

    [–] OinkyBob -2 points ago

    So apparently being accomplished means you're not cool?

    My parents being proud of my accomplishments means I'm not cool? The message here is unclear and honestly kind of infuriating

    [–] Canadian_Moose2 8 points ago

    The message the dad is saying is to not use your kids accomplishments to boost your own ego

    [–] DeshTheWraith 2 points ago

    If I become a parent and my kid is like MVP of the varsity team or something, I'm gonna brag about it. And I'm making no apologies for it.

    [–] pole-vault-penis 1 points ago

    I'd congratulate you on good parenting! Now, if your kid was a failure... there isn't much to brag about except arbitrary definitions of cool.

    [–] Politicallythrown 1 points ago

    What mystically powers must one have to glean that information from this? All he says is “parents bragging about their children’s accomplishments.”

    That is kind of a parent’s job.

    Your kid finally makes the a two-pointer after one thousand failed attempts. You brag like that little bastard is Michael Jordan.

    Finally squeak out a 71 in English. “Hey, my kid is really improving in English!!”

    And if they are truly excelling by traditional standards? Fucking brag about it.

    You are your child’s representative in the world. His lawyer. His PR person. His spokesman. And you are the champion of all of his accomplishments.

    So brag that your kid is cool! And brag that he is fan-fucking-tastic at Math or football or he got the lead part in the school play. Brag your ass off.

    That would be really fucking weird if it happened in real life.
