TOPICS | Parenting | Education Posted Friday, July 25, 2014 (776 views)

We are not even sure what a hipster is but we love that Jennifer Latch, from Urban Playground created this list of signs your child is turning hipster. We especially enjoy number's 11 and 12. Which are your favorites?


1. They start wearing sunglasses inside.

2. On Saturday mornings you find them watching Inspector Gadget episodes on VHS.

3. They seek out local hand-crafted artisan root beer.

4. The origin of the cacao bean in their chocolate bar is of the utmost importance.

5. They'll only drink milk out of mason jars.

6. When you bring home new clothes, they ask if the cotton weaver was paid a fair wage.

7. If you offer them a chicken nugget, they act like you are trying to poison them.

8. They want to meet their friends at thrift stores.

9. Their temporary tattoo collection is epic.

10. Dogs are too mainstream, so they ask for a pet chicken.

11. The only character toy they own is a vintage She-Ra doll.

12. Suddenly they hate their rainbow loom.

13. Their skinny jeans are two sizes too small on purpose.

14. You overhear them say to their friends, "I watched Pixar shorts before Disney acquired them."

21. Suddenly they seem to know everything. Like, really know everything.

22. You hear them name-dropping on the playground.

23. They only listen to bands they found on Vimeo you've probably never heard of.

24. It starts taking them an hour to get ready because they need to make their hair look like they don't care how it looks.

25. They've taken up whittling.

26. They open an Instagram account that has more followers than yours.

29. After school one day they say, "I am being confined by the boundaries of traditional education."

30. When you ask them what they want to be when they grow up, they say, "I want to be a creative type. Maybe live off the grid and spend time with my three-legged cat and eat kale from my organic garden."
