The New York Times bestselling guide that teaches parents what is PREDICTABLE and NORMAL about their teen daughters' often worryingly extreme behavior, and provides CONCRETE ways to form a healthier, happier relationship with their girls.

Lisa Damour, Ph.D., DIRECTOR OF CLEVELAND'S FAMED LAUREL SCHOOL'S CENTER FOR RESEARCH ON GIRLS, 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 daughter's friend is cutting herself. Do I call the girl's mother to let her know?
  • Each chapter contains ADVICE TO HELP GUIDE GIRLS THORUGH EACH PASSAGE and a "WHEN TO WORRY" SECTION in each chapter helps parents know if their daughter is facing unusual difficulty with a particular stage.
