Actually, it’s still kind of odd, but unwinding with an adult coloring book is perfectly acceptable.
So why are coloring books so good for adults? Coloring books are therapeutic.

Parents ESPECIALLY need coloring books to unwind, decompress, and color something besides blank pages of Frozen characters all damn day.
