  • Hi, I'm Kristen Bell, and I'm the mother of two.

  • I know, it's crazy, right?

  • I mean, I look like I'm 19 or something.

  • Speaking of teenagers, I've arranged to spend time

  • with a bunch of them today.

  • I'm going to get a peek into my future

  • and learn what to expect when those hormones kick in.

  • And I'm going to be honest with you--

  • I'm very afraid.

  • (SINGING) To all you moms out there, been doing it right.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • So what do you guys like to do on, like, a fun day?

  • Is fun-- we still use the word fun, right?

  • I like thrifting.

  • Me, too.

  • Going to, like, Melrose vintage store.

  • Me, too.

  • Yes, for sure.

  • No way.

  • Yes, the thrill of the hunt.

  • Yes.

  • You get something no one else has.

  • [INTERPOSING VOICES]

  • Oh, we are so similar.

  • I thought we could go to the mall.

  • Do you want to go to the mall?

  • Yes.

  • Let's go to the mall.

  • I knew it.

  • We're so similar.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • What worries you as a teenager?

  • School.

  • My future.

  • Everything.

  • Oh, wow, OK.

  • So school--

  • Yes.

  • Because why?

  • In high school, grades define you.

  • Colleges are so hard to get into.

  • It's, like, a combination of getting grades

  • to get into those schools.

  • Wow.

  • Sometimes it's fun to have a competition with your friends.

  • But when people take it too personally--

  • Yeah, that happens with us in our household

  • and we play Catan.

  • We're so similar.

  • I have two little girls, you guys.

  • They're four and six.

  • Aww.

  • I know, right?

  • But they're not that smart yet.

  • They can't even say the word specific.

  • Spuh-siff-ick.

  • Buh-cif--

  • --ciff-ick.

  • Skiff-ick.

  • Stiff-icks.

  • [LAUGHING]

  • Suss-spick-ick?

  • No.

  • Puff-ick.

  • Suff-ick-ick.

  • Very close.

  • Do you guys get along with your parents?

  • For the most part I do.

  • Sometimes.

  • It depends.

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah, it depends.

  • Depends, right?

  • Depends a lot.

  • What's one thing you've never told your mom?

  • I won't tell.

  • I have a scar on my forehead.

  • And I told my mom that I hit a door,

  • but I actually snuck into this guy's house through his window.

  • And then I--

  • OK.

  • [LAUGHING]

  • And my mom like--

  • With the intent to hang out?

  • Well, we were just like--

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Well, we were actually--

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Actually, we were just watching a movie.

  • Yes, of course.

  • I remember one of the first times I ever drank.

  • My mom was out of town, and I think I was 16.

  • And I had, like, six friends over.

  • But we were sneaking beers.

  • And at the end of the school day on Monday,

  • I got a page from my mom.

  • And I was like, oh, [BLEEP].

  • And I called my mom, and she was like, get home right now.

  • And I was like, oh no, oh, no, oh, no.

  • And I came home, and I walked through the door.

  • And she had her arms folded, and she goes, I was out of town

  • for two days, and you did not do one single load of laundry?

  • Oh, my gosh.

  • And I was like [GASPS].

  • And then I was like, I am so sorry, mom, I'm so sorry.

  • But I was very nervous.

  • Oh, my gosh.

  • So stressful.

  • Do you guys say "like" a lot?

  • Oh, for sure.

  • All the time.

  • All the time.

  • OK, let's have a contest.

  • OK.

  • Let's see if we can go three minutes

  • without saying the word "like."

  • OK.

  • These classes where they're, like,

  • you have, like, the option is college--

  • I'll just say, be respectful of other people.

  • Like, just don't get into other people's business.

  • Like, just mind your own business.

  • Yeah.

  • But I find it also matters a lot for, like, your future,

  • like especially Califor--

  • It seems like parents and teenagers

  • are on different wavelengths, like parents

  • are operating to have control, because they're fearful.

  • And teenagers are operating to have independence,

  • because they're growing.

  • Yeah, and when my mom always goes, Julia, do not do this,

  • then it makes me want to do it.

  • Of course it does.

  • Oh, we are so similar.

  • Yeah.

  • Here's a question.

  • I will buy a frozen yogurt to the person who

  • can tell me what time it is.

  • OK.

  • It-- oh, wait.

  • Do they teach that in school still?

  • Oh, we're here, girls.

  • We're here.

  • [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • [GASPS] You guys, it's like they knew we were coming.

  • All right, get in front of here.

  • Get in front of here.

  • I'm the photographer now.

  • Hold on.

  • Hold on.

  • Oh, that's a picture of me.

  • Hold on.

  • Oh, it's a video.

  • Why do moms never know how to use cameras?

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Oh, God.

  • We've got to post it, or it didn't happen.

  • [CAMERA CLICKS]

  • [CAMERA CLICKS]

  • Put this in your pocket.

  • Don't.

  • That was a test.

  • OK.

  • (SINGING) I do my hair tall, check my nails.

  • Baby, how you feelin'?

  • Feelin' good as hell.

  • Hair tall, check my nails.

  • Baby, how you feelin'?

  • Feelin' good as hell.

  • Ooh, that was fun.

  • Let's do that again.

  • (SINGING) And do your hair tall, check my nails.

  • Baby, how you feelin'?

  • Feelin' good as hell.

  • Hair tall, check my nails.

  • Let's get some froyo.

  • Oh, my gosh.

  • What a coincidence.

  • You guys, your moms are here.

  • Oh, no.

  • Oh my God.

  • [INTERPOSING VOICES]

  • Oh, my.

  • Oh, my.

  • Let's go see them.

  • I got to spend the day with your lovely daughters who have been,

  • I will say, nothing but respectful, and kind, and open.

  • So cheers to you guys for raising those kinds of women.

  • Thank you.

  • You're very welcome.

  • They have all said that they are friends with you.

  • And the other thing I learned is that they

  • feel like they want you to trust them

  • a little bit more than you do.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • But I will say, in my limited time with them,

  • they seem pretty darn trustworthy.

  • Yes, they do.

  • They are.

  • They're good girls.

  • So do you guys have any advice about raising young women

  • so that they can turn out like the result you guys got?

  • Make them all keep coming to your house.

  • Be the house.

  • Be the fun house.

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah, get to know all of their friends really well.

  • Oh, that seems so tedious.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • No, it's real good.

  • OK.

  • I've learned a lot of valuable lessons today.

  • (SINGING) We can make it right.

  • So go and let it all hang out tonight.

  • And do your hair tall, check my nails.

  • Baby, how you feelin'?

  • Oh, no.

  • [LAUGHING]

  • Uh-oh, watch this.

  • [LAUGHING] It is good.

  • That's a mom.

  • Problem solved.

  • Nothing a little frozen yogurt can't fix.

  • Am I right?

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Yeah.

  • Actually, can I get a--

  • ah, much better.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Nice.

  • I'm a mom, guys.

  • [LAUGHTER]

Hi, I'm Kristen Bell, and I'm the mother of two.
