21+ Parents Who Were Cooler Than Their Kids

By: Anuradha

All our parents want to see us doing better than them. they educate us, teach us many things and give us whatever the thing that we want with the hope that we would enjoy life better than the way they did at our age. They are too much selfless in their love and commitment to us and most of us always want to be like our parents one day because it is not likely that there can be anyone better than them.

Even though we can go pass them in technology and other modern things, there are certain things that we cannot beat them in and one such thing is the way how they embraced the new trends and fashions of their time. most of these parents are from a time where new motor vehicles were invented, new concepts and haircuts were introduced and here we have a collection of some pictures that show the young days of our parents. They do not only show the young look of our parents but also the way how time has changed with time and there is no doubt that you would fall in love with the beautiful days of your parent’s youth.
