I have a serious dilemma. I want kids later in my life and i want them to learn everything that i know about the true rock and roll of the 80's. I am so obsessed with 80's that i want my babies coming home in Kiss outfits and carry around Kiss blankets, pacifiers, and bottles. I want their room to have Kiss teddy bears and mobiles everywhere... My problem is, i am not sure if that would be a great thing to do considering that i don't want them to get made fun of like me.
In my school, I am the only student who really gets into the good music and i am looked down upon by other students. I just dont want my future kids to get hurt...
What do I do??? Is it bad that i am thinking of this???
Well Jacey, I see alot of kids that are into the 80's music. I guess I wouldnt force it on your kids but what I have found is most kids that grow up listening to that, usually love it. I really don't think they will be picked on because of them liking the 80's. If other kids are that shallow to pick on someone because of their choices in music then those kids have alot to learn about music themselves. I wouldnt worry to much about it. I hope that helped
Yeah i had the same problem. I went to school in Germany, all the kids liked the pop music. Only about 10 of us liked the metal ie iron maiden, metallica, motorhead, kiss.... Funny thing is ALL their bands are gone. But most of the 80's bands are still going, some are even better. So we have the last laugh- ha ha.
Hmmm i'm thinking that's probably not such a great thing to do to be honest. I'v got 2 kids, a daughter who is 22 and a son who is 17, they both have very varied musical tastes and although through the years they have listened to music that I like to listen to I would never dream of trying to push my tastes on to them. Music for me is such a personal choice, I would not like to be told or made to feel I must like a certain genre of music just because my parents liked it. Anyway ther just going to get to an age where they will like anything that u don't like lol Let them make ther own choices Jacey.
I have been blessed with a wonderful kid,I mean it.He's 6 now and,believe it or not,when I bring him back from school,the first thing he ever says even before entering the door,is :Put me some music.He started with Bon Jovi(he wasnt one year old yet),got trough Metallica and now its all about the Crue and Tommy.Who knows what's going to be next?
Now....I'm sure that the teen years will bring nothing but trouble and I can only hope that he'll be strong enough to stay true to his tastes and just give the finger to who doesnt agree with him,but that's not likely to happen.But,I'm also sure that,teen age being passed,he'll get back to good music,because I'll stay true to what I like and he'll always hear good music here,at home.
I have never forced my music on him and I have no intention of doing so,but I trust his good taste.;)
