Which of the following is grammatical?
- He wants to remain a cool kid for the rest of his life.
- He wants to remain as a cool kid for the rest of his life.
"Remain a cool kid" is preferred in American English. I've seen "Remain as" used in Commonwealth English, although I don't know whether it's considered more acceptable than "remain" alone.
