For young kids, parents are someone to look up to, and they're actually pretty cool.

But at a certain age, that cool factor starts to wear off, and parents can become a bit embarrassing.

One teenager told us, "I hear about other kids parents doing embarrassing things, but most of the time, I'm kind of disappointed, my parents have kind of been slacking in that department."

Most kids can come up with a number of stories recounting a time where their parents made them want to crawl under a rock.

But the real question is, who's more embarrassing, mom, or dad?

According to a new study, kids voted their dad's to be most embarrassing.

But what is is about parents that make eyes roll, and faces turn red?

Some teenagers told us it depends on what their parents say. Or how they act when the music turns on.

"He just starts beating on the steering wheel and like rocking out to weird songs when my friends are over and it's very embarrassing," one teenager said.

Regardless of what embarrassing antics their parents are doing, kids seem to have come to a consensus on how to handle the situation. Some say they walk away or ignore their parent.

The study also found that 60-percent of kids believed their dad's fashion sense was lacking, while another 60-percent said their dad's think they're cooler than they really are.
