Yo, yo, yo - language.

English, mostly. Sometimes I throw in a little French or Spanish for their cultural edification. But I swear, it's like they can't hear me.

I think you should write a book: "All the Stuff about Parenting Teens that Celebrities Won't Tell You" (aka "How to hide your weed where they won't find it" -?) I'm sure it would be a big hit.

1. It's really, really hard no matter how famous you are.
2. Nannies are pretty much useless at this point no matter how much you can afford to pay them.
3. Someone is going to offer them money to write an unflattering book about you.
4. They don't need the money but they'll do it anyway.

Seriously Jess

Here's my theory:

Older, pock-faced, smart-mouth tween/teens are a liability to the celebrity set. They're not cute anymore, and thus are no longer a stylish accessory.

You think celebrities even see those kids on a daily basis? That's what those fancy boarding schools are for -- a dumping ground for older kids during the unpleasant adolescent stage.

They're only allowed back into society when they're old enough to model or act.

OMG ...If the celebrities can't make them tolerable, what hope is there for the rest of us?

Cheer up! I'll bet Brangelina will be calling to adopt your teens any day now. They're running out of fashionable Third World country children to accessorize with.

Brangelina could just about afford them.

I could use some celeb advice on parenting teenagers. The shit I'm dealing with now is not something anyone tells you when they hand you your wee swaddled infant in the hospital and send you home with that free Similac kit.
