Unless you were synthesized in a laboratory or forged by the hands of the gods themselves, you most likely have parents. Even though I can hear a lot of young people think “gosh, my parents are like, super annoying”, having parents is pretty awesome. For starters, you wouldn’t be walking this earth if it weren’t for them, but you also don’t have to worry about paying rent, insurance, cooking your food and if you’re lucky, cleaning your room and washing your dirty underwear. That sounds like a sweet deal to me.
However, parents can and will have their annoying moments. A good example is when you want to start going to the gym. Most parents will think you’re on drugs when you have a delicious, chocolate flavored protein shake, so going to the gym is the equivalent of committing a serious crime to some. “You just don’t go to the gym when you’re young! Go play with your toys!”
“Mom, I’m sixteen, I’ve been in a relationship for three years, I don’t have toys.”
A lot of that fear is based on concern. Parents are concerned that doing any form of resistance training is bad for their children’s health. The most common concern is that it will stunt their growth.
