Episode 3 of “Clem” season 12 has many surprises in store for us! One thing is certain, little Emma is going to give her mother a hard time. A situation that actress Lucie Lucas knows well since she has a daughter of the same age. She tells us more.
Clem: a difficult teenage crisis to manage!
This season 12 of Clem highlights the concerns that Emma, played by Elina Solomon, will encounter. The young girl enters sixth grade and finds herself very quickly at odds with his classmates. Emma wants at all costs to look like the girls in her class who have a lot of confidence and who are sometimes insolent. Thus, his behavior will change and his family will find it difficult to manage his mood swings. As if that weren’t enough, the teen gives stepdad a hard time Matthew (Loup-Denis Elion).
Lucie Lucas, who has slipped into the skin of Clémentine Boissier for 12 years, gave us an interview in which she returns to the behavior of young Emma. In effect, this season focuses on the ill-being of the teenager. The latter will find her father Jérôme (François-David Cardonnel) and this will change her vision of things. The young girl, in the midst of a teenage crisis, will do everything to rebel, attract the attention of her new friends and become independent. Emma wishes at all costs to leave with her father… Lucie Lucas gives her opinion on the subject:
It’s very interesting the subject of the blended family and the situation in which Emma puts the character of Matthieu… It’s dizzying horror, I think.
A situation experienced by Lucie Lucas
Obviously, Emma will do as she pleases and will put herself in danger. Unfortunately, his bad associations will put him at risk. Clem will do everything to try to understand and listen as much as possible to his little girl who is growing up. In short, it a not obvious period, which the actress knows well since she has a daughter of the same age. She told us about his personal experience with his daughter:
I have a daughter who is the same age and we absolutely don’t realize what it’s like to have a child going to sixth grade. It is extremely particular. Our children, who are still children, are thrown into a world that they don’t know at all, that we don’t know at all, and which is constantly changing. It’s a world in which there are very sophisticated traps and tools, such as social networks, telephones, computers… As a result, this can completely isolate them from reality. We (the parents) will really feel that we are losing the thread.
It’s not always easy to be parents…
This new season of Clem gives us a glimpse of the difficulties that pre-adolescents can encounter when returning to college. At that age, children develop and identify a lot with others. Emma will try to detach herself from her mother and stepfather as much as possible. Clem will therefore have to do his part to understand and listen to his daughter. Lucie Lucas told us her feelings on this subject:
I try to work on communication with my daughter, as well as trust and complicity, but it’s very difficult. In addition, it has been proven that teenagers construct themselves through the eyes of other teenagers around them and they use them as benchmarks. This is also why they have a total rejection of everything else. As parents, you have to accept that. It’s nice to see them grow, but it’s particularly worrying to see that something is slipping away from us. And that is really shown in Clem.
Emma is not the only one to encounter some problems. Her brother, Val, will also have to deal with a somewhat abusive teacher. The boy will find himself in a delicate situation that will put him uncomfortable. All these risks jeopardize his future in an art school.
