I don’t think actual teenagers will find these tweets funny, but parents sure will!
Hey, they’ll grow out of it…right? Right?!?!
1. Pretty much any alcoholic beverage will do.
Can anyone recommend a good wine that pairs well with a teenager's shitty attitude?

2. Don’t ask me that kind of stuff!
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".

3. Sounds a bit fishy.
"My stomach hurts" is teenager for "I have a test in geometry"

4. Give me some space.
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?

5. A very trying time…
Be kind to the people you meet… you never know who’s raising a teenager

6. Thanks for letting me know.
A fun thing about having teens is how they text you from school to tell you they don't like their lunch.

7. You should probably do what she says.
Me: Will you empty the dishwasher please?
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

8. Sounds like a hoot.
Apparently quality time with my teenager in 2019 is mostly just looking at awful Instagram memes and saying,
"Mmm hehe ok"

9. That’s not good news.
Having a 15 year old son has really turned me into a boring asshole, apparently

10. Just put it on!
At least 40% of raising a teenager is arguing about wearing jackets and coats.

11. A future chef?
Raising teenagers: a comedy.
17: "Mom how do I cut that ball salad?"
Me: "1:Is it for a sandwich? Because that is a cabbage. 2: you have to cut it in half first"
17: "It tastes green"
Me: " yes. Raw cabbage"
17: *makes himself a raw cabbage and ham sandwich*

12. Remember the good times.
The look of boredom on my teenager’s face when I ask him to do anything for me. Yeah I was bored when I was in labour for days too but it got much more exciting when they cut me open because you were asleep and decided to disengage. HAPPY DAYS.

13. Didn’t last very long.
Raising a teenager:
3:30 pm: Mom, when will you take a break from work to love me? You’ve been working all day.
3:31 pm: When are you going back to work? I have YouTube videos to watch.

14. Not going as planned.
Raising teenagers is having to ask them a thousand times to complete a simple task thereby taking years off your life in the process.

15. Some good tips here.
Do’s and Don’ts when raising a teenager:
*Act excited when you see them
*Ask them how their day was
*Make any jokes… they will never be funny
*Expect any form of affection
*Sing out loud when driving
*Expect them to tell you that they love you
*Love them anyway

Let’s just say they’re going through some “growing pains…”.
