How to be the Most Embarrassing Parent in the World


I’ve been in the trenches with little kids for a while now. Car seats and Pull-Ups and picture books and plastic mattress pads and grilled cheese sandwiches have been my life for the past eight years. Slowly, one by one, those things are all making their way out of the house in return for some new things that accompany bigger kids, instead of little ones. Some of those things are very good, like the ability to fend for themselves in the morning, and some are very bad,  like the fact that I am quickly becoming the most embarrassing parent in the world.

Recently, I’ve been asked by my daughter to wait inside for bus drop off instead of escorting her to the door, to change my outfit on three separate occasions and not play music while there are other kids in the house. If my own history is any indication, we have at least a decade of this crap ahead of us. Instead of moping over this development, though, I’ve decided to embrace it. If they’re going to think I’m the most embarrassing parent in the world, I will be the most embarrassing parent in the world, dammit.

Here’s what I’ve come up with so far…

1. Blast Broadway show tunes and belt out every last word, with the windows wide open.

2. Send elaborate love letters in lunch boxes.

3. Chaperone a field trip wearing a “Team Lily” t-shirt.

4. Cheer loudly and animatedly at sporting events.

5. Carry adorable, naked baby pictures everywhere and whip them out to complete strangers.

6. Talk in goofy, made-up foreign accents to their friends.

7. Answer the door wearing a bright green face mask and plastic shower cap.

8. Dance like a crazy person when 80’s music comes on in the grocery store.

9. Dance at all, ever.

10. Use silly pet names in public. Loudly.

11. Force them to wear matching outfits for holiday photos.

12. Label their clothing with smiley face hearts around their names.

13. Shower them in constant kisses, wherever we may be.

14. Pick their noses.

15. Welcome the bus with a fully choreographed cheer.

16. Yell “I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!” at the top of my lungs as the bus drives off.

17.  Use saliva to wipe off their dirty faces.

18. Wear a bathrobe and slippers to school pick up.

19. Maintain my blog.

20. Breathe. (I’m thinking that’s probably enough.)

I love this! My oldest daughter is 14, and I live to make her roll her eyes at me :) My (and her dad’s) being goofy has caused her to have her own goofy side, and I love it. She takes it in stride when I car dance, has learned to love the music I listen to (and realized that current music has no depth), and has come to accept that I’ll ask questions of her friends or teachers that she thinks are embarrassing (like, “How are you today?” LOL) The worst she has ever had to endure was when she tagged along with me and two of my girlfriends to the mall… they sat in the backseat whining like children, pointed out cute boys in the stores, called her name constantly (to draw attention to her), and just generally drew attention to our group. She kept saying we were embarrassing her, but by the end of our jaunt, she had the biggest grin on her face and had even gotten into all the silly antics. She later told me that it was the funnest time she’d had in forever… embarrassed in the moment, finding the humor after the fact.
It doesn’t ruin your children to tease them a little, in fact, it shows them that you love them. Trying to completely humiliate them, yeah, that’s not so cool, but a little embarrassment never hurt anyone. Some people need to stop being so silly over harmless pranks… yelling “I LOVE YOU” as your kid is heading into school isn’t going to humiliate them for a lifetime, maybe just for a moment 😀

She’s going to be SO mad! I hope you’re kidding:) Because quite honestly, at this age, it is actually biological changes occurring in her brain that are responsible for her behavior. And she has no control over it. In the field (I’m a child psychologist), this period of development is referred to as “being on stage.” Given all of the physiological changes that are on over drive within the brain, it causes kids to feel as if they are being observed constantly.

Why do you want to humiliate your daughter? Because that is what you are doing and she is going to hate you for life – take it from experience. My parents were so embarrassing when I was a child and I never got over it. For example, I played soccer for a bit and during one game I got hit in the head with the ball (I played goalie); I wasn’t crying, bleeding, or unconscious (I wish) and yet both my parents run out onto the field and humiliated me in front of the ENTIRE TOWN! I am still angry that they did that and that was a long time ago.

I suggest you just face the fact that your daughter is a human being and deserves some respect. Sure you cannot give in to all her demands, but what she is asking for is very small. She wants some independence by waiting for the bus on her own, what’s wrong with that? And as for the music – would you want to listen to music you hate? Probably not. So of course she would prefer you not play it in front of her friends. As for outfits – as long as you don’t look like a slob or are wearing VERY dated/inappropriate clothing, I wouldn’t change anything – you do owe her the respect to look nice though (would you let her leave the house dressed in certain ways?)

    Brit 2 years ago

    I totally agree! I think it’s disgusting when parents are PROUD of the fact that they behave in embarrassing ways. I am 27 years old and my mother STILL constantly goes out of her way to embarrass me. I ignore most of it because when/if I say anything, it just goads her into acting even worse. (Much like the parent in the first comment who “proceeded to dance the entire damn video of New Edition’s If It Isn’t Love in the middle of the store.”) She seems to consider it her mission to embarrass me in every way possible and the existence of Facebook has only made it worse.

    So while in some cases kids/teenagers/your adult children may be overreacting, remember that they are still PEOPLE and maybe — just maybe — your life-long goal shouldn’t be to embarrass your children.

My dad used to greet my dates wearing bib overalls, stinky and sweaty white wife-beaters, chewing tobacco juice running out of his mouth…and he would fart. Yes. Dates a plenty? Not so much!
The best thing he ever did was when I brought a boyfriend home (he was a really large guy) my dad took him on a tour of our family property. In a golf cart. And made him sit on a cinderblock — in the BACK of the cart. Every time we went over a bump, he made the guy get out “so the tough stuff won’t be so tough”.
I don’t think said boyfriend thought it was funny…but my Daddy sure did.

I love this list!! My kids are used to me being goofy so they just laugh when I do anything. They will even dance in the store with me. My DD is 12 and all her friends love coming to me, I’m the pierced and tattoo’d mom which makes Me awesome. Pretty sure my DS 11 is going to be the one I embarrass eventually…I can’t wait!!

Christine @ Quasi Agitato 4 years ago

I love your attitude because you are so right. We can NOT win. No matter what we do, we will be THAT mom in their eyes. So why not do what we feel instead of trying to change our behavior to be less embarrassing because that is impossible. You may have just changed my life. Thank you.

One of the first times my 11 yr old whispered, “Mommy, you’re embarrassing me” was in Target. I’d been humming along to Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody. She said that and at the next song, I proceeded to dance the entire damn video of New Edition’s If It Isn’t Love in the middle of the store. YOU DON’T KNOW ME, LITTLE GIRL. I live for this shit.

Amanda 4 years ago

Oh yeah my kids know better then to irritate me while their friends are around!!! And we have special “mommy rules” that apply during certain situations, such as… While dropping them off someplace.. Anyplace, I will always tell my kids while I am parking that I love them. Now this leaves them with either one of two options… They can either say it back in the privacy of our own car or the alternative. Which my boys learned in jr. High they decided that they were to cool to say that to me so I waited until they were half way to the door and their friends were all gathered around them and I got out of the car and started yelling at the top of my lungs “I love you boys!!!” repeatedly until they turned around and said it back to me!!!! I never got ignored with the love you’s since!!! Lol

I wonder if this technique could be used for behavior modification? For instance:
Your tween/teen thinks you are the most embarrassing thing IN THE WORLD.
Your tween/teen adopts a behavior that drives you up the wall.
You adopt same said behavior, thereby de-legitimizing it in your tween/teen’s eyes.
Behavior dropped.
Happy Scary Mommy.

I’m pretty sure my mom did most of these things. Once I was in high school, I embraced it. There are still people with whom I graduated who say how grateful they were that they could always hear my mom at band competitions because it felt good to know that someone was cheering for us. I would say that I hope your kids feel the same way, but I wouldn’t want to spoil your fun!

I can remember that my mum always felt spontaneously like getting me ice creams after a dentist visit!! Had I known it was for her own sick amusement I may have passed up the messy treat on offer!
I can laugh about it now, but I do remember getting home from the bus trip and seeing ice-cream all down my neck, chin and front of my shirt, of course my face was numb so I had no idea!! I was hoping I’d be able to refrain from embarrassing my kids, but it’s a bit more fun than I’d ever imagined!!

If my DD5 ever tries to tell me to change my outfit I have dozens of photos of her ill advised outfit choices stored on my phone that I am prepared to whip out and use as proof the actually she has no fashion sense either. Hell if she really gets on my nerves I might ‘accidentally’ email them to her friends.

I also love to grab her arms and make her dance along (badly) to the music while she stands there mortified and rolls her eyes at me.

Actually as I start thinking of all the embarrassing things I do/ will do to her it has suddenly dawned on me… OMG I’m turning into my mother.

Walmart/Target beauty aisle. 80’s music playing. Grab one curling iron, or brush, or whathaveyou and follow them up and down the aisles belting out said musak using curling iron as a makeshift mic. Add some 80s style dancing. A fun time had by at least me! LOL!

Great list! In response to my daughter’s recent aversion to nudity I’ve started wandering around the house in various states of undress. I’m hoping it’ll nudge her towards a healthy body image but so far it’s just nudging her to say things like “Please put some clothes on, Mom!”

I love your list! If you ever update it, you might want to add:
Posting on your kids’ Facebook walls, and tagging them in pictures!
LOL! Your sense of humor is the best tool in your toolbox! Don’t lose that, and you’ll be fine! Stay the Course! It’s worth it. I enjoy your posts, and have been following you for a while!

To encourage you, this time in your life WILL fly by, like everyone tells you! My kids are now 21 and almost 23, and it seems like last week when I was in your shoes. I finally KNOW that all the efforts we have put into “family time,” and maintaining traditions are worth it, because my children are taking up my “traditions cause!” The kids chastise me if I forget to do some little thing that we have “always” done! (Where are the mashed potatoes? You ALWAYS fix mashed potatoes at Christmas!) My kids have finally gotten over being mortified that I like to dress our family alike for holidays. Now they want to participate in choosing our family’s matching Christmas pajamas or 4th of July t-shirts–and they want us to buy them for all their friends, too! If you’d like to see a photo of part of our group last Christmas:

Corinne Edwards 4 years ago

I have one to add –

When my boys were 8-10 and 11, I remarried and horror of horrors – I got pregnant.

Obviously, I had “done it.” with my new husband who had never had a child. For me, three was enough – but –

I was forbidden to come to the school – or if I had to – I had to stay in the car. Of course, I was not to be seen.

After my fourth son was born, it all changed. I don’t think his feet ever touched the ground until he was two.

They adored him. And all my kids’ friends did too.

love the list! When they hit those teen years it is pay back time and you can really have some fun.
This one is my favorite 5. Yell “I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!” at the top of my lungs as the bus drives off.

I have one that i did to my daughter when she was 14. We were at the mall and there were some boys looking at her and enjoying what they were seeing. I just looked at them and said, “She looks good, but you need to realize she is retarded.” They moved on and she was ready to dis own me.
Thanks for the great post when it comes to those pay backs for the our cute little curtain climbers.

LOL. I did this with my 4 adult children. It was fun. It came back to bite me in the butt though. My car would not start on a day I had a dr. appt. My 26yr old daughter offered to take me to my appt. She had an errand to run near the dr’s. office so she dropped me at the door. As I was about to walk up the sidewalk she yelled. In her best southern hick accent. “Now Momma, I’ll be back to git you in just a little bit! Do not leave the dr’s office!” “Did you hear me Momma?”

When I was checking out I walked back in to a VERY crowded reception waiting area. Made eye contact with my daughter all the way across the room……thankfully she decided it’d be too much to do something there. LOL She said she’d give me a break but I better watch out.

I taught her well.

I call it my “special” book. It will be brought out when their are boyfriends over or used as punishment if they dont obey. I am also investing in lots of bubba teeth and overalls in the event I need to pick them up from somewhere they werent supposed to be in the forst place.

The best revenge is to have your children’s friends LOVE you! My teenagers friends want to come over here, they want to live here, they call me Mama. I act cool and try to dress nicely for all of their school functions, drive a “cool” car, listen to top hits music. My own kids may “hate” me most of the time (3 of 5 are teenagers so I expect it) but the best revenge is when they tell their friends how mad they are at me, the friends say…you have the coolest, best mom, quit talking smack about her! I am their parent, not their friend BUT I don’t have to be their friends parent HAHA!!

    Jamie Wyatt 4 years ago

    You are ABSOLUTELY right! We always stocked plenty of snacks, and encouraged kids to “make themselves at home!” We always invited our kids’ friends to stay for meals and family outings. You often learn more from other kids, than from your own, about what’s going on. (I have fond memories of glancing in the rearview mirror to the backseat as my kids were frantically trying to silence their friends who were “spilling their guts” to me!) At 22 and 23, our kids’ friends still congregate here every time our kids are home, and they sometimes stop by anyway!

      Colleen 4 years ago

      It is the best revenge and the best way to keep up with where your children are, what they’re doing, and who they’re hanging out with. All the other kids want you to be the chauffeur & chaperone (which can get annoying). You can also guarantee that someone is going to say something about what they were really doing when they were supposed to be at the “library”!

Growing up, my friend’s dad had a Pinto that he had since he was 16yo and he refused to get rid of it. When he learned it embarrassed the kids he stopped driving his nice car and started picking them up from school and sports practices in the Pinto. One day my friend saw him driving up after practice in it and was so embarrassed, that she ran to the car before he could fully enter the parking lot. After she got in he still drove into the parking lot and did donuts LOL. He waved and then took off with my friend sitting as low as possible in the front seat.
