Do you sometimes listen to your kids talking with each other or their friends, mentioning strange phrases and talking about things and people you have never heard of? Have you ever felt just a little uncool for not knowing what is cool these days? (Apparently, the word “cool’ is really not cool anymore!).
Here is the latest in your kids’ culture to keep you in the know, comfortably current and up-to-date!
It spread like wildfire across the globe about a year ago, this dance move or playful gesture just became the answer to everything with kids – if they are asked to pose for a picture, they dab, if they don’t want to answer a question, they dab, if they don’t know what to do with themselves, they dab. Celebrities, politicians, athletes and even Royals, have done the dab, but according to the kids, no parent to date has been able to perfectly master “The Dab!”
This little game is actually refreshing and reminds us of our childhoods, when a simple household item can have enormous potential to occupy us for hours! All you need is a half full small bottle of water, you hold it from the bottom and flip it to land on its bottom!

The Jenners – There were the Kardashians, and now there are the Kardashians and the Jenners. All siblings and half-siblings, models, socialites, reality show stars, fashion designers – they are everywhere and our kids just can’t get enough of them. Know who’s who in this family and your kids just might be impressed!
Streaks on Snapchat
To get “streaks,” on snapchat, you have to send a picture of anything to one of your friends, who then has to open that picture and then send you a picture of their own that you have to open, every single day to get and keep your streaks. Kids reach up to 400 streaks per friend. There is no reason for collecting streaks, no prize at the end – nothing. It’s just for the satisfaction of having them.
And you are up-to-date!
