    The most important advice I can give my teenage daughter is to believe in herself and not give in to pressure when confronted with decisions that could make a tremendous impact in her life, especially her future.  Teenage life is probably the most enjoyable phase of a girl's life but it can easily be marred by wrong choices and decisions.  Holding on to one's personal standard of basic right and wrong has to be reinforced.

    Do not forget your culture, language and religion.
    Hold up your self confidence.
    Do not lose your moral values.
    Pick up the best friends.
    Love and respect your parents and relatives.

    let her know that you understand that is not easy to be a teenager, that you love her dearly, and that, while she may not always agree with your decisions, you are making these decisions with her best interest in mind, and she needs to trust you - and other competent and qualified adults to help her navigate her world.

    I always remind her 2 things: No SEX BEFORE MARRAIGE and STUDY COMES FIRST. In Asian countries, sex is a taboo topic, not open to the public nor in the family. My husband doesn't talk about sex topic with any of my children so I had to be the 1st person to open the topic, especially my teenage daughter.
    Secondly, about the studies.... majority of her friends are affecting her study mood.. they are movie goers, gossipers, idol fanatics and comparing who has the lowest mark in exam! So, parents had to brainwash her before it is too late.

      Follow your dreams, never compromise your principles for anyone else's, your life is your own-live it to the full, never intentionally hurt another but neither should you always conform those to who want you to be "unselfish" by doing what THEY want.

    Already been said....Polonius to Laertes, "Hamlet". At the conclusion of a long speech he ends with, "Above all...to thine own self be true." Many teenage girls would roll their eyes at Shakespeare, so modernize it, but the message is powerful and timeless.

    When my daughter was a teenager I constantly praised her on all the great things she did, not so much on her looks. I have a beautiful daughter, but I wanted her to know she was special for her abilities not for her looks (nowadays there's too much attention paid to that).

    Same with my oldest son when he was a teenager. Teens need to be verified that they are able, that they are good that they are worthy. Even though during this period they feel they know and understand more than their parents they still need our approval and affirmation, love and understanding. They need to know --- sometimes because we're their parents we think they know how we feel and how much we love them. But they need to hear it often.

    To be true to herself - to lead and not be led - to remember that the consequence of poor choices may last for ever and most important of all that THE WORLD IS HER OYSTER!
