Hey, Lifebabblers. Today, we're talking about parents -
the best, worst and weird things they get up to.
The Lifebabble team will be sharing their most embarrassing
grown-up moments as well as what they love about the adults in their lives.
Whether it's falling out or keeping things happy at home,
we'll be checking it out with the Lifebabblers.
Parents, whether you have one, two, three or four,
parents and families come in all shapes and sizes -
foster parents, step-parents, grandparents.
Whoever the adults in your life are, chances are they're pretty special
Saying that, parents can also be good at doing
some embarrassing stuff.
My mum likes to give her own little spit wash if you have a bit of dirt
on your face. She'll spit on her sleeve and
she'll get right in there.
When I first started high school, my parents would give me the most
"Make sure you focus on your books." "Don't talk to girls."
All good advice, right?
Well, not in front of your new school friends.
My mum constantly makes me laugh at really inappropriate situations,
like being at weddings or doctors.
I remember my parents used to always come up with
really embarrassing nicknames for me.
It turned from Garrett to Gar to Jar.
She's an embarrassing parent, but I love her.
Whenever my mum and dad try to come into the room and be cool
by talking to me and my friends, I always have to tell them to go away.
And trying to be cool, they always go, "Whatever."
Whenever there's music on, my mum dances weirdly
and she sings really loudly.
It just makes me, sort of, cringe and it embarrasses me
in front of my friends.
Finding adults embarrassing is usually just part of growing up.
I know I can be embarrassing.
Sometimes you can see the funny side.
And other times it's not so funny.
It's normal for everyone to fall out and argue sometimes,
especially with the people that we're closest to.
And as time goes on relationships change and it's not always easy.
If it does happen, remember to do those things
that you would like other people to do for you.
A lot of the time, arguments can be resolved
without becoming a big deal.
Though, unfortunately, this is not always the case.
If you feel scared, it is really important that you talk
to someone about it.
Sometimes, you might feel more comfortable talking to someone
outside your family.
There are also some pretty amazing things about parents.
Sometimes, they just deserve a medal.
For putting up with me, even when I get really sassy.
Working the hardest, but then complaining about it the most often.
-For being super supportive.
-Thanks, Mum, and Dad.
For being incredible people who inspire me to do my best.
Listening to me no matter what the problem is.
For believing in me and my dreams.
They believed in me since I was little
and I really appreciate that.
That's all for this Lifebabble.
