Mom hilariously compares 'parenting today' to when she was growing up

Parenting habits have changed over the past thirty years and it shows. Back in 2020, Gwenna Laithland made a video comparing the parenting of today to when she was a kid. "Mom ... Jennifer, Elizabeth and I are going to go hang out at the abandoned construction site," Laithland said as her teenage self. "OK. Be home before the streetlights come on," Laithland's mom, played by herself, said barely paying attention. But the way Laithland is with her kids today couldn't be more different. When her teenager asked if they could go to a friend's house, the mom's response was a lot more thorough. The video received over 1.4 million likes on TikTok
