  • To show how “down with the kids” she was.
  • He sounds like someone’s dad trying to “get down with” the kids.

Can somebody tell me what “down with” means in these sentences?

Get down with the kids normally mean speaking the children's language and be less like a adult with the kids.

But it can also mean enjoying yourself without restraint with the kids, as suggested by CED:

get down

informal (mainly US) to enjoy oneself uninhibitedly, esp by dancing

(with friends in a social setting) get down and party!
