Every teenager between 16 and 18: I got this. I know everything. I’m smart. I’m an adult now…sort of.
18 – 19: I don’t got this…mom? Mom? Hey mom what am I doing with my life?
When you finally figure things out: Okay…this time I got this for real. I am invincible!
When you have your kids: I went through this! I know everything!
Your teens ages 13 – 16: No you don’t understand me at all! No one understands me!
You: Yep…I went through this.
Your kids after they learn their lesson on their own: I should have listened to you…you were right about everything!
You: I know. Everything is gonna be okay.
