Ah, raising teenagers.
To get through it, you need a good sense of humor and these parents of teens have very very good ones.
All stages of parenting are hard. When your kids are newborns, you don't sleep and when the 'terrible twos' hit, you have to deal with tantrums all day. But when they reach the teenage stage, well, that's a whole new ball game of difficult. Those teenage hormones will control your life and there's absolutely no telling how it will go. These parents describe just how difficult and frustrating it is being the parents of teenagers and how nobody can be prepared for it however hard they try.
