It’s the bumper sticker on the car ahead of me at the light, University and 6th in Berkeley: “MY CHILD IS A SUPER CITIZEN AT NYSTROM SCHOOL.” In case you’re interested, Nystrom School is in the perennially trouble-beset Richmond school district, just north of Berkeley.
My first question is who came up with these “my kid’s an honor student”-type stickers? My second is does anyone, including the young Mensa aspirant whose achievement is being celebrated on the back end of mom’s car, react positively to these messages? I didn’t think so.
This one threw me a little, though. “Super citizen”? What do you have to do to earn that? Make it through a semester without shoving another kid down the stairs?
More ideas for parents who want to bumpersticker their kids’ achievements and milestones.
“My Daughter’s a Community College Dropout”
“My Kid’s a Student at the County Honor Farm”
“Our Child’s a G.E.D. Valedictorian”
“My Child Tested Negative”
“My Little Lad Got Life Without Parole”
“Proud Parent of a Republican”
“Our Son Says He’s in the Texas Air National Guard”
“Our Grandkids: We Love the Little Bastards!”
