NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Lisa Damour, Ph.D.,
director of the internationally renowned Laurel School’s
Center for Research on Girls, pulls back the curtain on the
teenage years and shows why your daughter’s erratic and
confusing behavior is actually healthy, necessary, and
natural. Untangled explains what’s going on, prepares
parents for what’s to come, and lets them know when it’s
time to worry.
In this sane, highly engaging,
and informed guide for parents of daughters, Dr. Damour
draws on decades of experience and the latest research to
reveal the seven distinct—and absolutely
normal—developmental transitions that turn girls into
grown-ups, including Parting with Childhood, Contending with
Adult Authority, Entering the Romantic World, and Caring for
Herself. Providing realistic scenarios and welcome advice on
how to engage daughters in smart, constructive ways,
Untangled gives parents a broad framework for
understanding their daughters while addressing their most
common questions, including
• My thirteen-year-old
rolls her eyes when I try to talk to her, and only does it
more when I get angry with her about it. How should I
• Do I tell my teen daughter that I’m checking
• My daughter suffers from test anxiety. What
can I do to help her?
• Where’s the line between healthy
eating and having an eating disorder?
• My teenage
daughter wants to know why I’m against pot when it’s legal
in some states. What should I say?
• My daughter’s
friend is cutting herself. Do I call the girl’s mother to
let her know?
Perhaps most important,
Untangled helps mothers and fathers understand,
connect, and grow with their daughters. When parents know
what makes their daughter tick, they can embrace and enjoy
the challenge of raising a healthy, happy young woman.
