Cady and Regina may have been the most fetch characters of the 2004 film “Mean Girls,” but Regina’s mom, Mrs. George, stole the spotlight in our book with her, um, unique parenting style. Read on for some parenting tips from everyone’s favorite “cool mom.”
She’s a total stage mom
But not the overbearing beauty pageant kind of mom that risks everything for her kid to win. Oh no, we’re talking about a camcorder-holding, aisle dancing, picture-taking, emotionally uplifting mom who serves as inspiration for the kind of supportive parent we should all aspire to be.
She’s concerned with her daughter’s sexual health
As any parent should be, but Mrs. George’s intrusive technique of waltzing into Regina’s room mid-hookup is one for the parenting handbook. “You guys need anything? Some snacks? A condom? Let me know! Ugh, God love ya.” The communication skills between mother and daughter could use a little work, but points for keeping an honest, open relationship with your daughter, Mrs. George.
She doesn’t set boundaries
Mrs. George: “If you need anything, don’t be shy, ok? There are no rules in this house. I’m not like a regular mom. I’m a cool mom! Right, Regina?”
Regina: “Please stop talking.”
Mrs. George: “Okay.”
Now there’s a mom! Finally! No rules means no curfew! No consequences! No healthy-shmealthy dinners, no homework, no school or learning or…. Oh. Hmm. Okay, she may have missed the mark on this one. We still love you, Mrs. G. You keep us young.
