My mom talks like a teenager!
Q : My mom always tries to use teen slang like “bae” and “stan,” and it’s so embarrassing! Even worse, she usually uses the words wrong. I think she wants to look cool in front of my friends, but she just makes every conversation awkward! How can I get her to stop? — Briella, 15
A: Hey, Briella. Parents + slang = major cringe, but try to cut your mom some slack. She just wants to stay connected to you and your friends! The truth is, you’re at an age where you’ll slowly begin to do more and more things independent of your mom and she knows that. Her slang talk probably has more to do with her wanting to keep your bond strong than trying to embarrass you. We have a feeling that if you kindly explain to her that she’s cool enough without trying to use teen slang, she’ll start to cut it out of her vocabulary!
