PARENT CUE         

Parent cue blog

Parent Cue is not an encyclopedia or exhaustive training course on making your kids “turn out”. Parent Cue is a blog, a prompt. Because really, they know you’re already busy doing all you can to invest in your kids and help them on their way to adulthood. But it’s not always easy to stay focused. Parent Cue’s goal is to make it easy for you to remember what’s important.

GEN Z SLANG WORDS

Extra: To be “extra” is to be unnecessarily dramatic and over the top. // She celebrated her birthday for an entire month. She’s so extra.

Fit: Fit is just the shortened version of outfit. // She had on a fire fit at the game

Flex: To “flex” (as a verb) is to knowingly flaunt and show off. As a noun, a “flex” is the thing being shown off itself. // He drove himself to school in a new car the day after he got his license. He’s trying to flex.

Go Off: Go off can be used to encourage a choice, or to support a rant or ridiculous behavior that’s already occurred, usually meant humorously. Often, the phrase “I guess” follows it // You sat there for five minutes trying to tell me how to live my life, meanwhile I have yet to see you get yours together. But go off, I guess

Tea: Tea is gossip, and “spilling the tea” is the act of gossiping. // Spill the tea, what did he say? // The boomer slang equivalent of tea is “the skinny”

Wig: Wig is a phrase used to refer to something that is amazing – so amazing, and incited so much shock in you, that your wig flew off // I got free tickets to Katy Perry’s show! No way omg WIG!
