A Cautionary Tale: The Day My Kid Went Punk
‘The Day My Kid Went Punk’ tells the story of teenage musician named Terry who hopes to distinguish himself from “the crowd”, by becoming a ‘punk rocker’. Watch the doctor from the Love Boat (Bernie Kopell) become outraged as his teenager falls victim to “punk syndrome.”
The moral of this story is: Being different is wrong. Just go with the crowd and don’t rock the boat. This is a serious story and a warning to parents. Do you know where you child is right now?! He could be listening to punk! Don’t let this happen to your child. Punk Syndrome is not a joke!
What do you do when your bright, loveable, talented kid turns into a punker overnight? Whatever you do, do not take them to Riot Fest.
