There are many styles of parenting and they’re all up for debate, but one dad found out just how unpopular his style is when he posted his hard rules for his kids on Twitter. Going by the name “Agent of Chaos” with the handle @TheTrillAC, this pop doesn’t allow his kids one of the key ingredients to trust between children and parents: privacy.
He wrote, “My children will get ‘privacy’ from me when they can pay their own bills and feed themselves. Until then, you do what I say. Ain’t sh*t negotiable. We not friends.”
My children will get “privacy” from me when they can pay their own bills and feed themselves. Until then, you do what I say.
Ain’t shit negotiable. We not friends.

Based on his Instagram posts, Mr. Chaos has kids who are still too young to appreciate how important privacy is. He’s probably a loving dad who thinks he needs to take this hard line to protect his children, but his tweet was quickly ratioed by folks who did have this kind of parent. It didn’t work out.
No one, not even children, can stand to be monitored 24/7, and it will only lead to dysfunctional family relationships—according to the thousands of comments—and old age in a retirement home:
Mans gonna be real mad his kids don't trust him at all and won't call him once they leave

I literally told my dad the other day "y'all can live in my house when you're old, and i'll take care of you." because they never controlled me like this or invaded my privacy. raise your kids right and they'll respect you & treat you right in the future.

exactly they think it's all about respect until that child is grown and they have no type of relationship with them

My dad use to read my social media messages, would get physical anytime an argument happened, and would never say sorry. We haven’t spoken since 2014. I don’t see a reconciliation happening anytime in the foreseeable future, either.

Yep, that's exactly what I did and I didn't miss them one bit. My kids will be raised differently.

Right! When I got older my mom was all “how come you tell your friends stuff and not me” Well after hearing “I’m not your friend for 18 years and other drama I don’t feel comfortable. ??♀️ Your fault.

Same. I haven't spoken to mine in over 10 years. They've never met their grandchildren, and never will. Actions have consequences, especially abusive actions.

Despite the backlash, this doesn’t seem like a guy who will change his mind easily. He’s not the Internet’s friend either, and maybe not the brightest guy, as this person pointed out:

We may have to wait and see who is right. Too bad his kids are the ones caught up in the chaos. Don’t be like this, parents, because one day your kids will be adults and they won’t be your friends either.
