When you are the parent of a young child, you tend to joke about the teenage years ahead. However, when you are the parent of a teen, or even a pre-teen, the jokes stop and the reality sets in that you have entered into a world like no other.
Here are ten tweets from parents that most pre-teen/teen parents can relate to.
A fun thing about having teens is how they text you from school to tell you they don't like their lunch.

According to my teenage sons the appropriate number of squirts of Axe Body Spray is somewhere between 38 and 579.

Don't give up hope, parents of uncommunicative teens. Today my newly-chatty son said "nah" only three hours after I asked him a question.

Teen tried to make a dramatic exit by slamming my door, but there was a towel on the knob. No slam, & no dignity for her as I died laughing.

*super irritated that people always say, “Oh you think it’s bad now just wait til they’re teens…”*
[Me after teens]

Just changed the Netflix password so my teenager has to come out of his room to talk to me.

The thing I like about having teens is how they make a bunch of plans because they're "independent" & then ask to borrow money.

Just watched one of my teens struggle for 10 minutes to use a can opener on a can of soup with a pull tab.
The good news: She did get the can open, & that’s likely one less college tuition for us.

My 15yo son told me he wants to see "Get Out" but since it's R-rated, he'll sneak in. Real gangstas tell their mommy their plan in advance.
