how to talk with your teenager

Another exciting episode of my — I think– funny web series I did with Cafemom studios. This one is features my dear stepson Oliver.  He is not an actor by nature, but he was a good sport– and I paid him– to take part in this spoof of my pathetic attempts to be the B parent I can be.

NOTE:  the dub of him saying “mom” at the Dodger game was added in a later edit.  Not his voice, nor would he ever say that to me. He has a mom.  I’m always Daphne.  Or “stepmommy dearest”, maybe.  I think they needed to do that since I shot that part myself and the sound and picture were not optimum.

  1. My teen-aged son recently told me that he had a girlfriend (he’s 14 and in the 8th grade). I was thrilled that he’d actually tell me, so I said, “Are you going to kiss her?” And he said, “Maybe.” And I said, “Well, let it stop there.” And he said, “Mom, please.” And then he walked away.

    I found this video hilarious.

  2. Great vid, You seem like the ideal step mom. I find the role a challenge but watching what you have to say and blog on the subject gives me hope!

  3. Wonderful and funny. Kudos to your stepson, too. Loved the headphones in the car. Perfect.
    From a step-mom of several, and now all grown up. They still speak to me.

  4. Wow- that was seriously hilarious. The hopping on the sofa made me spit up my coffee. I guess I am lucky with my step- daughter who is nearly 16. If anything she tells me too much- showed me a picture of her kissing her boyfriend last weekend…almost threw up as i yelped “Don’t show your dad!” Maybe you can address that sometime…

  5. OMG – I missed this one – hilarious!! I was laughing hard. I’m going to watch it again. Thank you for being so talented!!
