Classic ABC Afterschool Special Warns Parents About Kids Who Go Punk

Parents are always trying to keep their children from becoming like some group society has deemed undesirable, like the Hare Krishnas in the 70s or the Juggalos today, but for my money there has never been a group more reviled than those rotten punk rockers.

With their spiked hair, tattered clothes and general F-off attitude it’s no wonder parents didn’t want their kids growing up to be punks, and parents are still afraid of their kids succumbing to punk syndrome to this day.

This legendary ABC Afterschool Special from 1987 was created to help parents and kids avoid making bad punk-related decisions in their lives, such as dying their hair radical colors or wearing too much jewelry.

The Day My Kid Went Punk is a warning to all parents- keep your kids away from that evil punk rock music or suffer the consequences!
