Millions of parents are trapped – in a confined space, 24/7 – with their stroppy, hormonal offspring.
We don’t expect one hour of daily outdoor exercise ever looked so good!
For the other 23 hours of the day, Twitter has become a lifeline for parens of teens, keen to share their teenage tales of woe with others suffering from the same affliction.
Here, we’ve rounded up the most hilarious tweets from week two of lockdown.
#Homeschooling2020 with a teen – and this is the second of many many glasses. Someone tell my please why the #lockdown meant not only loss of liberty but also career pivot into yr 10 teacher?? 🙄 pic.twitter.com/6k4da7EEwB

Be honest. Is yr cocktail hr getting earlier every day? One of my girlfriends has home schooled her teenagers on how to mix her martinis. A very important life skill! What is your top tipple? Or rather, quarantini. #lockdown (thx @DanniIMinogue for sending me this) pic.twitter.com/kF8fxefBdq

Grant me the serenity to take the milk carton back from the teenagers bedroom quietly
The courage to use it for my tea after he’s swigged from it all night
And the wisdom not to scream at the little tit
Mmm.. Warm milk in my tea#lockdown

I’m sure nothing will go wrong with a teenager and a harmonica in lockdown.

Lockdown haircuts are not going well
Listening to Neighbours attempting to give a teenage boy a lockdown haircut. It’s not going well.

With #hairdressers across the land shut & teenage son desperately needing a #haircut, I spent an hour trimming & fading his hair exactly how he likes it, only for his dad to come along to ‘tidy it up’ & basically giving him equivalent of a bowl cut! #homehaircut #fail

What’s your secret?! My teenager has turned into a hermit – outside bad, inside good!! Will be exiting lockdown with rickets and a Vitamin D deficiency at this rate 😣

We’re running out of snacks – fast!
#Lockdown has made me realise how much my teenagers eat!

3 teenage lads of lockdown. Food bill trebled.
Going through 6 pints of milk a day 😂🤦🏼♂️

My teenager is taking lockdown very seriously indeed. He’s being very strict about staying in his room and is only making essential journeys. Which as it stands are to the fridge and the toilet.

Day 27 without sports:
Some teenager has appeared on my couch. Apparently I have a child.
She seems nice.

Anyone else have that one teenager who doesn’t think the damn quarantine/lockdown doesn’t include them? pic.twitter.com/yKaG6xdnrf
