Cool Kid of the Day: Tony Hawk’s Daughter


There’s nothing cooler than folks keeping their teenage passions (you know, the ones that are still associated with teenagers by the mainstream) through adulthood, and there’s nothing cuter than the same folks passing on those passions to their kids. Says Hawk to those worried about his adorable daughter, “For those that say I endanger my child: it’s more likely that you will fall while walking on the sidewalk than I will while skating with my daughter.” Which at first brush seems a little brash, but then again… he’s the guy with nine X Games gold medals.

    We’ve sanitized childhood far too much, in my opinion. There’s nothing wrong with this… and trust me, she’ll be a far more well-adjusted and happy adult having spent her time with an adoring father who spent quality time sharing his passions with her, than if she had a father who didn’t do this kind of stuff. Let him be the dad he is, and let her be a kid.

    Maybe she’ll be a Future Famous Skateboarder like her dad, one day. :)

    Of *course* there’s something wrong with this. Precisely what would be lost here – and how would she be less well-adjusted and happy as an adult – if he put a damn helmet on her head? That’s what an actual adoring father would do – not show off for the camera while endangering his daughter.

    This is a serious question: tell me, precisely, what is lost by her wearing a helmet? You suggest that either he shares his passion with her, or he doesn’t. But actually, either he shares his passion with her less safely, or he shares it with her more safely.
