Punk is not dead.

Put a guitar in his hand and a cig in his fingers, and slap him on an album cover.

    But you're raising him to be all responsible and stuff. Punk is not responsible.

  2. Matt (Slainte Joe) says

    This is a subject I'm obsessed with. Can you be a 30-something, middle-class, passel-o-children rearin', not-quite-devout-enough-but-trying Catholic and still be punk?

    Alas, probably not.

    Still, my children dearly love The Pogues. That has to count for something, right?

  3. Matthew Lickona says

    So be easy and free
    When you're drinking with me
    I'm a man you don't meet every day.

    Counts for plenty.

    Focus on the countercultural aspects of your life?

    And take consolation from the fact that without the stability and order and discipline you're raising them with, your children will have nothing to rebel against. You could be raising a passel of punks! You may be the system they will seek to smash!

    You may be the system they will seek to smash!

    Or as my eldest likes to say: "Someday, it will be *I* who spanks *you*."

    That, my friends, will be an interesting day, should it ever come.
