A TikTok’er started a discussion about the two kinds of parents many of us had while growing up.

She had “bedroom parents” who spent most of the time in their bedroom, away from everyone, and the kids didn’t go in there unless invited.

Her husband had “living room parents.”  They spent almost all of their time in the public spaces of the house, hanging out with everybody.


Replying to @Tiffany Vaught so funny you say that..

Commenters expanded it to “basement parents,” “separate bedroom parents,” and a few others. You can read more about the different types of parents here
