Ouders klagen vaak over hoe lastig tieners zijn. Toch kunnen de jonge tieners er ook al aardig wat van! Het begin van de tienerjaren hoeft namelijk niet perse rustig te verlopen. Soms begint die lastige fase dan al, maar dat zorgt wel voor komische tweets:
Preteens are living proof that you can love someone with every fiber of your being while still hoping they’ll leave the room.
I spray deodorant on my 12yo son while he’s sleeping. You’re welcome.
You think you are going to be a cool hip parent, then your 12 year old daughter wants a pair of plain gray sweatpants that cost $58.

Me: Just because you have those now doesn’t make you better than us. We are still your family. My 12 year old daughter taking out an AirPod: Did you say something?

When my 11yo daughter is mad at me, she’ll sing an annoying earworm-type song until it’s stuck in my head, then walk away grinning. Thing is, I’m so impressed by the level of her evil genius that I can’t even punish her for it.
Me: Boom! Drops the mic! 12yo: Nobody says that anymore Mom. Me: Oh? What do they say? 12yo: I’m not telling you.
