Fan Creates PowerPoint Presentation to Convince Mom to Let Him Go to Electric Forest
: 28 Jan 2018 : Halee A.
Back in the day when I was a teen, getting parents to let you go to concerts and other events was tough. I remember trying to convince my mom to let me go to the Warped Tour when I was 14. It took A LOT of convincing (and tears) but eventually I was able to get my way after I told her all the statistics of why it would be safe. These days it seems like teens are having the same issues with their parents. Brendan Kaplan is one of them.
Brendan just wanted to go to Electric Forest with his friends, but his parents weren’t going to let him. To convince his parents to let him go, he created a PowerPoint presentation explaining why it would be a positive experience. He posted it on Twitter and Electric Forest noticed it and decided to help Brendan out. Electric Forest tweaked Brendan’s presentation and sent it right to Brendan’s mom on Twitter. The mom, Mindy, finally gave in: “Wow, I don’t know what to say…I can’t say no…so…yes, he can go! Thank you Electric Forest for your support!” They even gave Brendan a free ticket! He’s going to have the best time of his life.
