10 Things parents say to teens vs what they are really thinking

1. What they say: Are you going out like that? 
What they are really thinking:
Your outfit is too skimpy for my liking/alternative for my liking/dirty and creased for my liking – or, all of the aforementioned.

2. What they say: Aren’t you cold darling?
What they are really thinking: For the love of God, put a jumper over that crop top.

3. What they say: I would never have been allowed to do such a thing at your age.
What they are really thinking: I did it. Not once, but twice. Gramps just never found out.

4.What they say: It’s so nice to spend some quality time with you.
What they are really thinking: Can you please stop staring at your phone.

5. What they say: Wow (as you present yourself in prom outfit) you look so grown up! 
What they are really thinking: If I could rewind to when you were a babe in arms, I would. Like, without a second thought. In fact as soon as you leave I’m getting the baby pictures out. *Begins to sob uncontrollably*

6. What they say: We’re out of milk…
What they are really thinking: I need some alone time.

7. What they say: Do you know who did this? 
What they are really thinking: I know it was you that broke the vase/googled something wholly inappropriate.

8. What they say: It’s so beautiful outside! *Opens your bedroom curtains*
What they are really thinking: I’m about to cancel your Netflix subscription.

9. What they say: They seem nice…
What they are really thinking: Your friend has an attitude problem.

10. What they say: I’m a cool mum/dad aren’t I?
What they are really thinking: I can’t be that out of touch right? I mean, I have a Facebook page? *Shakes with insecurity*
