Teenage years are likely to be the best years of most people’s life. Those are the days when we get to hang out with our peers, have fun, and show the world that we know everything. Most teenagers refuse to obey their parents’ ‘rules’ because they feel like they are always right and don’t need anyone to give them directions or tell them what to do.
One mom named Nicole Poppic from California is sharing one of the struggles she goes through every morning because of her teenage daughter. While her 10-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter are behaving and still need their mommy by their side at all times, 14-year-old Cara does things her way.
Namely, Cara has troubles getting up in the morning and as a result she is late for school.
Nicole shared with Today how she manages to ‘control’ Cara when she refuses to listen and now the note she wrote to the school explaining why her teenage daughter misses the morning lessons has gone viral and makes us all laugh.
Apparently, Cara ‘suffers’ from a condition called teenage-ism. Well, I guess we’ve all been there and we can all relate to this young girl.
One morning, as the family got in the car, Nicole noticed that Cara had put her headphones on and didn’t really mind what her mom was telling her.
“That is when I saw that Cara had put in her headphones and was staring out her window, completely ignoring me,” Nicole told Today. “I reached over and took her phone off her lap, unplugged her headphones, and threw her phone out the car window.”
Afterwards, she wrote the hilarious letter which said:
“To whom it may concern:
Cara is tardy this morning as a result of a condition called teenage-ism. Adolescents across our great nation are afflicted and there is no known cure. Symptoms are multitudinous, but this particular morning she suffered from an inability to remove herself from her bed, and also felt the need to talk back to her birth giver.
She seems to be recovering her senses after watching her cell phone fly out of the car window.
Please call me if there’s another flare up.
Once she posted a photo of it on Facebook people loved it so much that it spread like a wildfire.
We believe Nicole is an amazing mom with huge personality and great sense of humor, don’t you agree?
