Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos might have their love life in order, but when it comes to raising their teenage son, they need all the help they can get.
"I read all of these books on teenagers, and they tell you all these things that are going to happen, and it all happened," Ripa, 39, told PEOPLE at Monday night's 10th Annual Trevor New York Summer Gala, benefiting gay youth crisis prevention. "They become surly. They lock themselves in their room. Everything [the parents] do is embarrassing."
She adds with a laugh: "I keep telling him, 'As far as parents go, we're the bomb! The coolest parents ever!' "

Kelly Ripa advised one couple on NBC's The Marriage Ref to get a stripper pole. But Ripa herself needs no such encouragement to spice things up at home – in fact, quite the opposite.
"He actually pays me money to keep my clothes on!" Ripa, 39, joked to PEOPLE of husband Mark Consuelos at the Point Honors benefit on Monday night in New York, which she co-hosted with Bravo's Andy Cohen.
"I'm actually given money to put on a parka. 'Put your parka on! Here's another dollar. Put on that hat!' "

Kelly Ripa's rep has a reply to the claim that the star's 12-year marriage to actor Mark Consuelos is over: No way.
"There is no truth to the story. Their marriage continues to be quite healthy, and the National Enquirer should be ashamed for fabricating such an untruthful story," Ripa's spokesman, Stan Rosenfield, told PEOPLE Wednesday, after the paper reported the couple have split.
"Their story is 100 percent false," Rosenfield added.
