In a surprising display of rage against education, school, rules and society in general, Jaden Smith blasted Twitter with a sequence of angsty tweets. The irony isn’t lost on this grammar nut, as the tweets pour out, many riddled with bad punctuation and the like. However, I gotta say, I think the kid has some good points.

Will, 44, and wife Jada, 41, founded their own school, the New Village Leadership Academy, in Calabasas, Calif. back in 2008. Even with the Smiths donating millions of dollars into the private elementary institution, which employed a wide range of untraditional educational methods, the academy shut down last June.

Assuredly, Jaden has the approval of his parents to express himself in whatever way he wishes. Us Weekly reports that The Smiths are very vocal on their parenting philosophy.

“I think that, specifically in African American households, the idea coming out of slavery, there’s a concept of your children being property and that was a major part that Jada and I realized with our kids,” he told Haute Living magazine. “We respect our children the way we would respect any other person. Things like cleaning up their room. You would never tell a full-grown adult to clean their room, so we don’t tell our kids to clean their rooms.”
