Battle of the Hormones: Your Teenager’s vs. Yours

If you are the mother of a teenager, there's most likely been a time or two when he or she has driven you to your last nerve. The hormonal changes teenagers begin to experience can make them even harder to deal with.

Given the unpleasant symptoms such as hot flashes and the high stress that so often accompany menopause, it's very important to make an extra effort to get along with family members.
