Karen is mum to 14-year-old twins and it's far from a walk in the park. Every week, she reveals all the ups and downs of living with teens.
'This is my top secret blog.
I'm afraid I don't have any tips or advice to share. Some days are hellish and bring out the worst in me, other times I see flashes of the sweet children they once were and, dare I say it, glimpses of the lovely adults they will eventually become.
But while I don't have any answers I hope that my rants and observations may give you some small comfort. Teenagers are hard work the world over. So if yours, like mine can be vile, obnoxious and full of angst and anger, don't beat yourself up about it. Believe it or not, they're perfectly normal.'
