Growing up, I have to admit my parents were pretty permissive. Academics were the absolute priority and I couldn't go out on weeknights, but some weekends my friends and I were allowed to get LIT. Like, puking-on-the-lawn, turning-the-kitchen-into-a-beer-pong-tournament kind of lit. They barely restricted my Internet browsing, though that's probably because they barely understood what computers did beyond e-mail. They were likely more overwhelmed by rapidly changing social mores and technology than they were actually 'cool', but 'irregardless' my household wasn't too strict - and my folks didn't enforce seemingly arbitrary rules.
