Mike’s Formula For Teen Daughters

On his Facebook wall, Councilman Mike offers this formula for dealing with teen-age girls: "Teenage girls + normal adolescent growing pain drama + text messaging = Escalation of insidious self-esteem challenges and overboard emotional responses. (I'm beginning to loathe text messaging.)" I raised my daughter in the pre-text era. (She graduated from Lake City High in 2004.) So I don't have experience in dealing with texting and teen girls. How about you?

Question: What was the biggest challenge in rearing a teen daughter that didn't exist in "your day"? And/or what advice would you give parents who are raising teen daughters?
