A husband interviews his wife to determine if she'll be a 'chill' or 'strict' mom, sparking a candid exploration of their parenting styles
Every individual has a different approach to parenting. Some people are very laid back when it comes to certain things, while they are strict in many others. Roger and Talia Scott, recently posted a hilarious video on TikTok where Roger interviewed Talia about different parenting situations and how she would respond to them as a mother. The video, captioned, "What do we think? Is Tals gonna be a strict mom or a chill mom?!" has got 277.3K likes and 336 comments on the social media platform.
At the beginning of the video, Roger asks Talia whether she wants to be a "strict" mom or a "chill" mom. She responds by saying that she wishes to take a relaxed approach but feels that she would end up being strict somehow. Roger is amused to hear this. He moves on to the next question, asking, "What would you do if our kid got a C or lower in class?" Talia casually responds that people who managed to get poor grades also managed to get degrees. She adds that they could "do better" but that she was fine with it.
Roger then asks her an important question involving a scenario where their child snuck out to go to a party and she only got to know the next morning. She says, "I would honestly just be upset that they didn't tell me about it." Talia hilariously adds that she would not let them go to the party even if they did tell her. She clarified that it would depend on a lot of things and would need a lot of information about the party. Roger concludes that she would probably not let them go after hearing all the questions she had.
The next question involved a situation where their kid had to get their car towed and it would cost $900 to do it. Talia responded by saying that she would ask the kid to "figure it out." She adds that if they were irresponsible enough to park their car in the wrong places they should be accountable for it. At this point, Roger asks her about how she would handle it if it was a genuine mistake. She replied by saying that she would help the kid out.
He goes to the next question, which involves another classic scenario where their kid skipped class and they got to know about it from the principal. Talia shared that something similar happened to her and her parents punished her by grounding her the entire summer. She says, "Honestly, it was horrible and I never did it again, so I would do that." Roger brings up another scenario and asks her what she would do if they turned off their location.
She responds by saying that her kids would be too afraid of her to do that. Talia revealed that she was more scared of her mom than her dad while she was growing up and felt like she could "channel that energy." Roger puts forward another hypothetical worrying scenario for parents and asks Talia how she would respond if she found out that her daughter snuck a boy in and she found out from the ring camera. She quickly responds, "She's done. She's not going outside anymore."
Talia adds that she would be disappointed but adds that she too had done it at some point in her life before breaking into laughter. Another scenario, involved their daughter coming in late at 2 AM after ignoring all her calls and text messages. Talia states that they would try to find her while adding that she used to ignore her mother's phone calls all the time. Roger says, "Dude, I feel like you're gonna get the most payback."
Roger asks his wife how she would react if she came to know her child had got a piercing or tattoo. She responded that she would be mostly okay with it and hoped that it would be something that was "cute." Roger is not overly happy to hear this. She shared that she got her own piercing when she was 18. Roger concludes by saying that Talia did a lot of things that she would not let her daughter do and she would end up being a strict mother after all. Talia says that since they both experienced different parenting styles while growing up, they could find a balanced approach as parents for their own children. People on the site chimed in with their own thoughts on Talia's approach in the comments section.
