NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER â€¢ Lisa Damour, Ph.D.,
director of the internationally renowned Laurel Schoolâ€™s
Center for Research on Girls, pulls back the curtain on the
teenage years and shows why your daughterâ€™s erratic and
confusing behavior is actually healthy, necessary, and
natural. Untangled explains whatâ€™s going on, prepares
parents for whatâ€™s to come, and lets them know when itâ€™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 distinctâ€”and absolutely
normalâ€”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
â€¢ 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
â€¢ Do I tell my teen daughter that Iâ€™m checking
â€¢ My daughter suffers from test anxiety. What
can I do to help her?
â€¢ Whereâ€™s the line between healthy
eating and having an eating disorder?
â€¢ My teenage
daughter wants to know why Iâ€™m against pot when itâ€™s legal
in some states. What should I say?
â€¢ My daughterâ€™s
friend is cutting herself. Do I call the girlâ€™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.
