I don't really understand the "Proud Parent of an Honor Roll Student" bumper stickers.
I understand a parent being proud, that's not the issue. I just don't understand why you would want that on your car. To actually stick a, presumably free, giant sticker on your many thousands (or more) of dollars vehicle that you will drive for (hopefully) far longer than your child will be a student at the school you're showing pride for.
Not that my parents weren't proud of my achievements, but I will tell you they would never stick a decal proclaiming it onto their cars! And really, I would never want them to do that. How embarrassing!
What high school student wants their parent to drop them off to meet friends with a big honor roll bumper sticker identifying them?
"Oh Debbie, here comes your mom, I can see her giant crimson and gold placard from down the block! She must be really proud of you!"
