You've seen Cool Mom. She's the one with the blinged-out cellphone and the clothes she borrowed from her daughter's closet. She tells you things your children told her and acts surprised when you don't know what she's talking about.
When the teens are in trouble, Cool Mom brushes it off. "We weren't doing anything wrong," she says, and you question her choice of pronoun. Well of course "we," -- she's the one who drove them there or tagged along or put the idea in their heads in the first place.
"They trust me," she tells you. "I'm one of them. It's better that way, because they tell me everything."
You watch Cool Mom with the kids, and she really does believe she's one of them. And a small part of you can't help but wonder if maybe she's onto something. Don't you want to be your daughter's best friend and closest confidante?
