I have a 15&16 yrs old teens, and they are enjoyable. Yours too can be enjoyable. I will give you more info if you interested in my secret.

This is odd

Yeah...I have teens of my own, thanks. And I find them enjoyable. And I also like the teens that I teach. So I don't need more info - or your 'secret'.

please let us in on your secret

I think this idea of a "secret" ignores the fact that teens are normal people, in other words unique individuals each with their own little "secret" that is most likely to be revealed to the people who know them, not to some stranger on the internet.

How strange

Hate to break it to you love but you might well just be lucky. Nature rather than nurture ie your secret.

I have a completely wonderful 16 yr old DD but I'd never claim to know a 'secret' to pass on grin

Normal people you say? Can you define normal for me?

flow4 Mon 14-Jan-13 09:30:16

Hahahahahahaha! grin

Do you have a book to sell perhaps?

What secret? Tell me the secret!

"Mom smokes in the car. Jesus is OK with it, but we can't tell Dad"

Btw, teens are by no means normal - have you read Blame My Brain?

flow4 Mon 14-Jan-13 13:22:26

Frankly, I'm not normal, so I don't see how my teenagers can be... confused grin

I presume this is an ad for something?

My teenagers are normal people too. Sometimes they are even quite nice.

Unfortunately they are also occasionally bloody awful grin. Like many normal people.

If it is an ad for something, I think the promotion company can safely conclude that their marketing strategy is dead in the water flawed!

flow4 Mon 14-Jan-13 13:28:02

Dammit, why didn't I think of that, bootsy?!

Pls tell me your secret OP, so's I can be normal like your two!

No really am v. interested!

Long distance relationship supplemented by weekly Skype updates?

Year-round boarding school.

bootsycollins Mon 14-Jan-13 16:33:30

I get it! Imaginary teenagers!

flow4 Mon 14-Jan-13 17:49:06

I've always thought parents should swap teenagers for a couple of years... You know: I'll have yours, she'll have mine, you can have hers... They're always perfectly nice and polite with other adults! grin

Do you live in Stepford. grin

My Teens were enjoyable. My secret was to drink lots of vodka.

Startail Mon 14-Jan-13 18:14:38

Teenagers are perfectly nice if you expect them to be nice.

They are not an alien species and I don't, greatly buy into theories of brain rewiring.

DD1 almost 15 is lovely, her two 16 yo BFs are lovely.

DD2 (11) will be lovely, even though she will try not to be.
