Best advice for moms of teens?
Keep your sense of humor! It seems like if I can diffuse the teen dramatics with him or then tensions don't escalate nearly as much. There are times when that doesn't work though and I point blank ask what is bothering her. Sometimes it's successful and other times she sulks around. Really just try to keep communication open.
I guess my best advice is to try to be the best role model for them. Don't tell them what to do, don't tell them what not to do. Show them the best place to land and let them (safely and with common sense) find their own way there.
