Regarding the context you provided in your comment "when a parent allows their child to do something. It's either generously granted, as in their divine will, or they permit it with sarcasm as if saying, "Go ahead, but just see what happens" , you could use "exasperatedly" :

"That child will be the death of me!" Despina complained exasperatedly as she pushed back her hair from her eyes.

  • Thank you. What am I'm trying to demonstrate is when a parent allows their child to do something. It's either generously granted, as in their divine will, or they permit it with sarcasm as if saying, "Go ahead, but just see what happens" as in their ........ will. Someone want to use the word permissive, but to me that is not showing the underlying motive. – user175526 May 16 '16 at 18:47
