But one great thing about these challenging teenage years is that every parent of teens can relate to the universal frustrations and joys that we all feel. We just get it!

Thankfully, we never have to look very far to find a funny parent who takes to social media to share their experiences and make us all laugh out loud in solidarity. We really ARE all in this together!

Here are 75 hilarious tweets about raising teenagers that we’ve rounded up to give you a chuckle and help you remember that you are never alone on your parenting journey.
