Yasmin Le Bon, the wife of Duran Duran singer Simon Le Bon, calls the years when their now-grown daughters were teenagers, a "dark place" and the most challenging period of parenting.
The fashion model tells The Irish Times, "I will always be their mother but I wanted to be their friend. Some people said I couldn’t do that but I disagreed ... I am not saying it’s easy to be both things at once but I became their friend by disarming them with honesty. There isn’t anything they don’t know about me .... I had them young, I grew up with them. I am still growing up. I am still the same idiot I was before and I’ve lots to still learn thank you very much."
