Sarah Michelle Gellar Expertly Mortifies Her Teenager at the Bus Stop & We’re Taking Notes

Raising teenagers is tough, and even celebrity kids don’t get a break. Sarah Michelle Gellar’s daughter Charlotte turned 14 on Sept. 19, and she came up with the perfect way to embarrass her at the bus stop.

“If you want to embarrass your daughter on her bday — wear this to her bus stop on her birthday,” the Buffy the Vampire Slayer star wrote on her Instagram Story, per PEOPLE. She also shared a video of her outfit. She wore a black sweater with white pajama bottoms covered in pictures of Charlotte’s face and her 11-year-old son Rocky’s face. What could be more embarrassing than that? She is a mastermind!

Gellar, who shares Charlotte and Rocky with husband Freddie Prinze Jr., also decided to embarrass her son on his 11th birthday on Sept. 20 (hey, it’s only fair!). She posted a selfie on her Instagram Story where she is wearing a button-down pajama top with her kids’ faces on it that matches the pants she wore the day before. “Don’t worry… I embarrassed Rocky today on his birthday,” she quipped in her caption. We are making a note of this strategy. It’s so cringey, we love it!

The Do Revenge star also shared sweet tributes to her kids on her Instagram grid. She shared two throwback photos of Charlotte in one post with a heartfelt caption.

“They say daughters give you an equal number of wrinkles from smiling and worrying,” Gellar said. “Charlotte, from the day you were born, I smile bigger, laugh louder and love so much greater.”

She went on, “And as for the worrying, you are a part of me. One of the best parts of me. I love every inch of you (even the teenage part) I must be the luckiest person in the world, because you call me mom. Happy Birthday Charlotte. #happybirthday #14.”
