Sunday Cinema – “The Day My Kid Went Punk”

ABC’s “After School Special” was a program that aired until the late 1990’s and was an educational program that portrayed problems and difficulties relating to growing up. From themes such as being gay, getting pregnant, divorce, the episodes were each self-contained so various directors/writers/actors were able to tell the story and not be tied to a specific storyline or characters.

In this episode, a young teen decided to “be themselves” by becoming a punk rocker much to the dismay of his parents (especially his mother, the psychiatrist). The moral of this story is basically be who you are, don’t let anyone tell you different…

Someone posted this episode online due to fond memories of seeing it when it originally aired…
