These Kids Realized They'll Never Be As Cool As Their Parents!

We often end up forgetting that our dear old folks were actually the ones who started all the trends we now admire and breathe. So, let's give them the overdue salute of honor!

No matter how much we run from the truth, eventually, a vast majority of us will end up becoming our folks somehow - from something as little as the manner in which they chuckle or perhaps something as significant as a similar profession choice.

Along similar lines, we've gathered a rundown of some actually cool parents who are definitely giving some tough competition to their 'hip' kids:
