There hardly is an easy stage of parenthood but nobody could argue that raising a teenager is usually one of the hardest ones. Once kids begin to realize they are growing up and are already on the path of adulthood, they change their behavior and mood much too often than they should which causes their parents to be either furious or cranky all the time. Those who have been down that road are fully aware of the fact that raising a teen is something that could be qualified as an extreme sport. Few could simply pass through that stage with no worries. Most parents would easily relate to the tweets below.
1. The advice
Here is one extremely valuable piece of advice that those who have yet to have a teenager at home. The things you should and you should not do are pretty much all you could see in the tweet above. It is important to follow them despite it is hard.
2. The comparison
We believe that it is hard for someone to come up with a good comparison for raising a teen but this tweet comes really close to the one would use. It seems that this person knows about that by experience and we really like this tweet.
3. The giraffes
Doing the whole variety of things related to raising a kid is often not enough to fully explain what it takes to complete this process. Needless to say, not every teenager is as incapable of pouring a drink just like the ones described here. Still, there is a lot of fo truth to it and we need to agree with the irony.
4. The name
Some parents have a unique approach when it comes to teaching their teens a lesson. It is not always easy to do that and it is certainly hard to find the most effective of ways in which to achieve it. We believe that this person tried something that would work with most teens if they are named like that, of course.
5. The convo
We guess that those who try to act smart are not always successful in their endeavors and this conversation showed such a moment. As you can see, the teen tried to say that doing this chore was not going to happen but the mother explained that there was an easy and a hard way for that to be done.
6. The years
Now, this is one of the funniest things we have seen lately but there is also some truth to it and we appreciate the sarcasm involved in it. The feeling some teens’ parents get when they look in the mirror or when they finally find the time to sit back and relax is similar to the one described here.
7. The weight
Here is one tweet that is extremely relatable not only to those who have teenagers at home but also to those whose kids are still at school. It appears that one’s offspring can really act nice if they want to and they do it mostly when they have done something that could end up with a punishment.
8. The wine
Parents everywhere rarely have enough time to have a relaxing night and to chill out undisturbed. It seems that these moments are much needed and most parents who cannot say they have them are forced to tolerate their teens’ behavior while trying to cope with it and all the other things life serves them on a daily basis.
9. The bedroom
There are moments when parents can actually teach their kids to look after themselves and to maintain their room as they should but we all know that most teens prefer their rooms to be a constant mess. In this case, one woman decided to troll her offspring by posting this tweet and we like the kind of sense of humor she used to do it.
10. The kindness
It really seems that people should really listen to this advice regardless of the reasons they take it. However, the main reason why this person posted this advice is more than obvious. We guess that the reason behind the tweet was a certain situation but the point is that someone’s grumpy mood might be triggered by their teenage kids doing something they shouldn’t.
11. The airport
Now, this is the kind of situation that you should avoid at all costs. It seems that teenagers despise the moments when they need to show their close relationship with their parents. They think that this would be something they need to be ashamed of especially when other teenagers are around to see it. Nothing is embarrassing when it comes to showing your close bond with your parents and that is a fact.
