Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings
||Advance praise for Untangled This is the book parents have been waiting, hoping, and praying for, because it s far more than a book. It s a map, flashlight, and GPS device for navigating the landscape of adolescent girlhood. Dr. Lisa Damour proves to be the perfect guide and companion: wise, whip-smart, and relentlessly practical on every page. As the father of three teenage girls, I wish I had this book years ago and I hope that it is read by every parent, teacher, coach, administrator, and human being who wants to help girls grow and thrive in today s world. Daniel Coyle, New York Times bestselling author of The Talent Code In exceptionally clear prose, Damour a clinical psychologist skillfully blends research analysis, psychological insight, and stories of girls and their families into a compelling narrative about what s right about our daughters. She illuminates the seven transitions that girls must untangle to become fully themselves, with each offering a corresponding opportunity for parents to stretch and transform themselves. Throughout, Damour offers unstintingly practical advice to parents about how to talk with their daughters about what matters most and in ways that they are likely to be heard.
