Youth Is Wasted On The Young

I used to work with someone who was in the movie "Rock 'n' Roll High School." It was a bit part, but it still made him one the coolest guy in whatever room he was in.

One of my kids and I watched the movie again the other day. Most parenting guides focus on teaching children to submit to authority. I hope mine learn to rebel a little too.

Hard to believe all of the drummers outlived Joey, Johnny, and Dee Dee.

We've taught our guy that respect, and authority, is only as extensive as deserved; and that no one is always right.

But then, we're bad parents because we don't live in the suburbs and send him to an urban school. And I took him to go see Henry Rollins.
