Untangled free pdf 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 respond? Do I tell my teen daughter that I m checking her phone? 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. Advance praise for "Untangled" For years people have been asking me for the girl equivalent of "Raising Cain, " and I haven't known exactly what to recommend. Now I do. Michael Thompson, Ph.D., author of "Raising Cain" An essential guide to understanding and supporting girls throughout their development. It s obvious that Dr. Damour gets girls and is one of the few experts in the field who works with them day in and day out. She clearly understands the best way for any adult to help them navigate the common yet difficult challenges so many girls face. Rosalind Wiseman, author of "Queen Bees
