TikTok is an unpredictable rabbit hole. Your FYP might give you the weirdest food combinations then suddenly show you some clips on how to clean a dirty toilet. But who would have thought that you could heal your mom issues here?
Mommy Russel and Kia’s videos show how she handles being a mother to a Gen Z, which many parents think is the most complicated thing in the universe (is it, really?).
Kia, 18, like many teenagers, loves going out with friends, buying random things from Shopee, and collecting albums and photo cards. These things might be the trigger points of some parents, but Russel has a different approach to these situations. She doesn’t get mad and come screaming at her daughter. Instead, she’ll let Kia enjoy her teenage life — with healthy boundaries, of course.
Here are eight clips that illustrate what we all wished we experienced during our teenage years so we didn’t have to lie or sneak out at night. IYKYK.
Supporting the fangirl within us
If I did that, I’d be homeless by now.
Letting us go on dates so we won’t have to hide it
Some of us would have to deal with hour-long pregnancy & marriage lectures. And after all that, di pa papayagan.
Enforcing limits without the screams and shouts
Spoiling us when we study hard
Other parents: “Why didn’t you get 100?”
Sana all may ganitong bonding.
Teaching us how to cook (without getting mad)

Let’s be real, most moms just can’t trust us around the kitchen.
Supporting us in our career/passion
Why do moms hate it when we want to pursue the ~arts~?
Letting us be kids/laughing with our trips
Not all parents are KJs!
Let our response be, sana all!
