Raising kids is really hard, and I’ve gotta say, I’m looking forward to the day they start to understand sarcasm. Which I know doesn’t mean they’re going to appreciate how hilarious I am, but you know. It’s a start.

Parenting teens is a whole new ball game all over again (I kind of feel like this is probably true of every age and stage), but at least you can make fun of them and embarrass them and no one thinks your a bad parent.

Something these 13 parents are taking advantage of to the hilt, and I am totally here for it.

13. One of the many reasons it’s nice to have a dog.

But maybe not a puppy because finally you won’t be cleaning up someone’s pee.

12. I assume this is literally any wine.

Unless it does not contain alcohol, of course.

11. It’s a silent struggle.

Except for the slamming doors, ofc.

10. See also: you look really nice today!

Seriously just tell me what you did or what you want.

9. Yeah, you might want to check that out.

Privacy schmivacy.

8. The next thing you know they’ll be expecting turndown service.

Or putting out a “Do Not Disturb” sign.

7. Yes, only with REAL curse words.

Be afraid of your Gen X parents, kids.

6. Or that might once have been a sandwich.

Also, I’ve found all of the spoons.

5. It’s all in the eye of the beholder.

So you’re probably just as awesome as you always were.

4. It’s all in the perspective.

And there are worse things to be than a dog, tbh.

3. This is really spectacular.

10/10 hope I can do as well one day.

2. It’s got a nice ring to it.

Because it’s real, I think.

1. Honestly, right now it could be either.

More likely both.


I’m going to need more posts like this immediately!

Do you and your teen have this kind of relationship? I hope I do with mine in a few years!
