    Listen to them. Love them. Understand them.

    I agree with Hmtrio2 as that is how you should treat a teenager. Disciplining them is different.
    -Negative reinforcement, or taking away something pleasureble tends to work the best.
    -Make sure the term of the restriction is reasonable-make the time fit the crime!
    -Use natural consquences whenever possible. ie. If they make a mess, they have to clean it. If they break it, they buy it or fix it.
    Make sure you have a running dialogue with your teen about all the tough subjects and less dicipline will be needed.

    There is no point in disciplining them. It's easier and more effective to compromise. Trust me, I'm a teen, I know. xD
