Chip Leighton is a content creator known for poking fun at text messages sent by teenagers. “Did the guinea pig see his shadow?” one said. “How much is the 4 for 4 at Wendy’s?” asked another.

The balls… All from your messages and comments #teenager #text #funny #parent #freshman @Wendy’s

When Chip Leighton wanted in on the parent reports, I didn’t hesitate! I knew he was the perfect teen parent correspondent.

Other commenters have decided to talk about other ways they’ve unintentionally embarrassed their teens. I’ve made a list of some of my favorite comments.

  • “I got yelled at for cheering too loud at a football game.”
  • “When my daughter says “slay!” I respond “murder!” she hates it.”
  • “I’m over here “doing too much” and I’m now a bruh, not a mom.”
  • “Heaven forbid you use cash and change to pay for something!”
  • “My daughter disowns me if I speak to strangers.”
  • “Breathing usually embarrasses them.”
