8 Illinois Parents to Follow on TikTok

As TikTok grows in popularity, more and more parents are using the app to document family life.

While TikTok seems like a platform populated solely by teenagers (and yes, the biggest accounts are definitely teens), many parents are using the app to highlight the ups, downs and major messes of raising children.

For the uninitiated, TikTok is a video sharing platform, whose quick videos and ever changing filters and dance challenges have made it one of the largest social media platforms ever.

Midwest parents like from Illinois and Michigan are amassing huge followings on the app — some parents even have follower counts in the millions. Parents are using the app to show everything from very satisfying cleaning videos to sassy kid comebacks, and more and more users are starting to view the app as another way to stay connected to other parents online.

Although TikTok might be a young person’s game, the amount of parent-friendly content makes it worth downloading. Check out our list below for the funniest and most interesting local parent TikTok accounts to follow.
