Life as a Skillet Kid

What would it be like to have John and Korey Cooper as your parents?

John & Korey Cooper (lead singer/bassist, and keyboard player/vocalist of Skillet) know how to rock out...but they're also parents to Alex, their 6 year old daughter, and Xavier, their 4 year old son.


Wanna know how they do it?

Well, Korey homeschools, and then John might take the kids to the park. Later that night, the kids may be asleep while Mommy & Daddy ROCK OUT at a concert (like the Awake Tonight tour they're on right now with TobyMac!) And then they go back on the tour bus and try to get some sleep.

It can be a crazy life, but John was quoted in the latest issue of ParentLife, saying, "My kids have learned to trust God from an early age..."

It's kinda cool to see this side of Skillet. :) You can click on the magazine cover to find out more.

Homeschooling is a lot more easy than attending a school. Especially if you're in a band, too.

Yeah my mom is awesome! She has homeschooled me since kindergarten. Homeschooling must make it so much easier for John and Korey.
