Hey there, fellow parents! Do you remember the 80s and all the gnarly slang that was popular back then? Well, one of those words is making a comeback: RAD! But nowadays, when your kid says “rad,” they’re not talking about a rad skateboard trick or a rad haircut – they’re actually using it as an acronym that stands for “Really Awesome Dude!”
So, when your kid calls someone “rad,” they’re basically saying that they’re super cool and awesome. It’s like they’re giving them a big thumbs up and saying “You’re the best, dude!” And if your kid says “rad” about something else, like a cool new gadget or a fun activity, it just means they think it’s really awesome and exciting.
As parents, it’s important for us to stay up to date on the latest slang and trends so we can connect with our kids and understand what they’re talking about. Maybe you can even start using “rad” yourself! Just remember to keep it groovy, parents!
