You know you’re one of these
There are many different types of parents, but when it comes to school drop off, there are a few stand-out characters. Over the years, the world has shined a light on parents who don’t have their kids ready in the drop-off line and funny ways schools are encouraging parents to follow the rules.
Video creator and father Tyler Calmus has dropped a hilarious video on the top five parents at school drop off. The owner of the YouTube Channel, Dude Dad has pretty much nailed each and every one of them, and confession: we now have to admit our “type.”
At the top, the “Always Late Parent.” We’ve been there, we see you, we are you. From wondering where their kids’ shoes are, to realizing they didn’t pack a lunch, to pleading with the kids to just freaking run before the second bell, the world wouldn’t be the same without a late parent.
Then comes “the Clinger.” Ahh, if only they were relegated to first-time preschool parents and kindergarteners. But alas, Clingers are everywhere. From the non-stop hugs and pictures to the “I’m so proud of you’s,” you likely have a Clinger in your kiddos class that is bringing all the feel-good vibes.
On to one of our faves, “The Cyclist.” While represented this particular way for Dude Dad’s video, these parents may also come in the form of a jogger, complete with an enormous BOB Stroller. We can’t help but love the obvious stretches, references to a generic job, and directions to not mingle a $1,700 Trek bike with the Huffy’s.
Don’t see yourself yet? Well, say hello to “The Impatient Parent.” We don’t have time for on-site ponytails, sporadic PTA meetings that block the carpool lanes, or missing shoes. We will grunt and moan and groan until you move.
Oh hey! Last but certainly not least, “The PTA Mom.” She is on a mission and she will get you to help, even if she has to hunt you down and slap her clipboard to get you to do it! Even though they can come across as a little annoying, PTA Moms make the world go round!
So admit it, which one are you?
