              NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - An urgently needed guide to the alarming increase in anxiety and stress experienced by girls from elementary school through college, from the author of Untangled An invaluable read for anyone who has girls, works with girls, or cares about girls--for e...veryone! --Claire Shipman, author of The Confidence Code and The Confidence Code for Girls Though anxiety has risen among young people overall, studies confirm that it has skyrocketed in girls. Research finds that the number of girls who said that they often felt nervous, worried, or fearful jumped 55 percent from 2009 to 2014, while the comparable number for adolescent boys has remained unchanged. As a clinical psychologist who specializes in working with girls, Lisa Damour, Ph.D., has witnessed this rising tide of stress and anxiety in her own research, in private practice, and in the all-girls' school where she consults. She knew this had to be the topic of her new book. In the engaging, anecdotal style and reassuring tone that won over thousands of readers of her first book, Untangled, Damour starts by addressing the facts about psychological pressure. She explains the surprising and underappreciated value of stress and anxiety: that stress can helpfully stretch us beyond our comfort zones, and anxiety can play a key role in keeping girls safe. When we emphasize the benefits of stress and anxiety, we can help our daughters take them in stride. But no parents want their daughter to suffer from emotional overload, so Damour then turns to the many facets of girls' lives where tension takes hold: their interactions at home, pressures at school, social anxiety among other girls and among boys, and their lives online. As readers move through the layers of girls' lives, they'll learn about the critical steps that adults can take to shield their daughters from the toxic pressures to which our culture--including we, as parents--subjects girls.

              An urgently needed guide to the alarming rate of psychological stress experienced by girls from age ten through college, from the New York Times bestselling author of Untangled. Though anxiety has risen among young people overall, recent research studies confirm that it has skyro...cketed in girls. According to research studies, since the turn of the millennium, a staggering 31% of girls reported feeling anxious, compared to 12% recorded in the 1980s. In a similar vein, the number of girls found to be emotionally fragile jumped 55% from 2009 to 2014 while the comparable number for adolescent boys remained unchanged over the same time period. As a clinical psychologist who specializes in girls, Lisa Damour, Ph. D., has watched this rising tide of anxiety in her own research, private practice, and in the all-girls' school where she consults, and knew this had to be the topic of her next book.

As readers move through layers of girls' lives, they learn the critical steps we can take to shield our daughters from the toxic stress that our culture--including we, their parents--subjects them to. Readers who know Damour from Untangled or the New York Times or from her regular appearances on CBS News will be drawn to this important new contribution to understanding and supporting today's girls.

              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 natura...l. 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. Praise for Untangled Finally, there s some good news for puzzled parents of adolescent girls, and psychologist Lisa Damour is the bearer of that happy news.
