19 #GrowingUpWithLenientParents Tweets That Will Enrage You If You Have Strict Parents

Growing up in my parents’ household was pretty easy. My mom and dad are the liberal, soft-hearted, easy-going types who never really seemed to see the value in going overboard with lots of rules and regulations, and as such, I never really had a ton to deal with.  This isn’t to say that my parents weren’t deeply involved in my academic life life–my mom knew the names of every single one of my teachers, and grew panicky if I befriended someone whose parents she didn’t know personally, since she prides herself on being the most well-connected person in our town–but, as long as my grades were good and I wasn’t, like, ingesting trans fats (Daphne and Jim are very passionate about organic food), I was pretty free to do as I pleased.

Or, at least, I thought I was, until I saw #GrowingUpWithLenientParents trending last night. I was excited to see this, since strict parents tend get most of the attention on the internet and, as someone who once had to ask my parents to ground me after getting a bad grade on a chemistry exam sophomore year, I thought I could relate. But my parents are, like, literal Tiger Parents compared to some of the moms and dads featured on this hashtag. So, whether your parents are lenient, strict, or somewhere in the middle, check out these #GrowingUpWithLenientParents tweets:
