An alternative parent/kid website and zine for the generation who have grown older but not up. The kind who are more likely to be found down the skate park with their kids than teaching them table manners. For the parents who thought they’d never be parents and the kids who think mum and dad are cool (well, kind of).

Great Expectations

Great Expectations
