Parenting is a full-time tough job. Every phase of the child is a whole new challenge for the parents. It unlocks different levels of their potential and tolerance. With infants come sleepless nights, countless diaper duties and lots of burping. As the child grows, there are toys laying around the house, literally everywhere. Lots of crying, screaming, exploring and breaking of stuff. Parents are by then taking care of a lot of things, putting child locks everywhere possible. Making sure that all the delicate things are out of baby’s reach. Then it’s your child’s first day of school and the parents have entered another level of parenting. Finally, the child is now 13 and has entered teenage.
This is the age when your child becomes grumpy and shows attitude. They do whatever they want and show a “take no orders” behavior. Here are 13 times when parents hilariously trolled their teens. It’s worth a read. Check it out below!
# 1 Dogs > Teens
“When your children are teenagers, it's important to have a dog so that someone in the house is happy to see you.”— Steven Isserlis (@StevenIsserlis) October 13, 2017

# 2 Dad 1-0 teen. Literally.
Can anyone recommend a good wine that pairs well with a teenager's shitty attitude?— Rodney Lacroix (@RodLacroix) July 27, 2019
Teenagers are the most misunderstood creatures on this planet and their mood swings are a completely different story. Teenagers go through a lot of physical and mental changes. They’ve hit puberty and are trying to figure out life and how things work. This whole process makes them moody and frustrated. They want to do things their way and parent’s way seem to be outdated to them. Since already there’s a lot going on inside of their body, when they’re controlled by their parents they get angry. As a result, they exhibit an obnoxious behavior.
# 3 This phase of parenting is definitely the toughest.
Be kind to the people you meet… you never know who’s raising a teenager— brokenamber (@amberlr4) March 22, 2019
# 4 Flattering comments don’t work anymore. Cover has been blown.
"Mom, have you lost weight?" is teenager for "I broke something really expensive that you don't know about yet."— Divergent Mama (@Divergentmama) May 4, 2020
#5 That just adds a little more fuel to the fire of wanting to check your kid’s phone.
How is it that my teenager feels free to scroll through my phone, check out my entire camera roll and read every last one of my text messages, but has a literal stroke if I make eye contact with her lock screen?— Christi Lukasiak (@ChristiLukasiak) January 8, 2019

Me: Will you empty the dishwasher please?— Fiona O’Brien (@RealFionaO) August 27, 2018
My teenager: I’m good
My teenager: That actually means No….that’s how my generation talks
Me: Lets try this again, Empty the fecking dishwasher or you’ll get my foot up your arse , That’s how MY generation talks #IrishMom
Perhaps, a lot of people think that the toughest part of raising kids is when they’re still infants. But, that’s not true. That’s merely just the beginning. Sure, it’s quite stressing when you have to take care of them at all times since they don’t know what’s better for them. But, have you ever thought what would happen once they start using their own brain? That too, when they still don’t know what’s the best for them? Yeah, that’s the scary part. And that’s called teenage.
Though they might not necessarily be all wrong about themselves, but they still need guidance and to be honest? They need guidance more than ever in teenage. But, the problem is sometimes they refuse to listen. They are young, ambitious, sharp and full of hope so it’s understandable how they think they can take on the world themselves. But, they’re not always right and they understand this once they enter adulthood. That’s just how life works.

My 16 year old is named Dexter and he was texting a bunch while ignoring me so i called him “Texter” and let me tell you about the world’s largest, most angsty sigh— Mary Numair (like new-mare) (@MaryNumair) January 29, 2020
# 12 Would be worth a read.
Stay tuned for my next book all about raising a teenager that will be entitled, "I don't know what time it starts or where I'm going or who's going to be there and I'm annoyed you're so concerned over minor details".— Melanie Shankle (@BigMama) June 7, 2018
# 13 Someone’s about to get in trouble.
My teenager just unloaded the dishwasher without being asked. She’s either done something wrong or it’s the goddamned apocalypse.— Michelle ❤️ (@MissColdHeart9) January 29, 2019
