Reviews

"Finally, there's some good news for puzzled parents of adolescent girls, and psychologist Lisa Damour is the bearer of that happy news. [Untangled] is the most down-to-earth, readable parenting book I've come across in a long time."--The Washington Post

"Anna Freud wrote in 1958, 'There are few situations in life which are more difficult to cope with than an adolescent son or daughter during the attempt to liberate themselves.' In the intervening decades, the transition doesn't appear to have gotten any easier which makes Untangled such a welcome new resource."--The Boston Globe

"Damour offers a hopeful, helpful new way for parents to talk about--and with--teenage girls. . . . Parents will want this book on their shelves, next to established classics of the genre."--Publishers Weekly

"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., co-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 & Wannabes

"Untangled is a gem. Lisa Damour deftly blends insights from her clinical experience working with girls, time-honored wisdom on adolescence, the latest social science and neuroscience research, and frank descriptions of cultural trends and media messages. From the moment I read the last page I've been recommending it to my clients (including those with sons!) and colleagues, and using it as a refreshing guide in my own work with teenagers and their parents."--Wendy Mogel, Ph.D., author of The Blessing of a Skinned Knee

"An arsenal of strategies to respond to your daughter's ever-changing brain, feelings, and choices, Untangled will become your dog-eared travel guide to the mysterious world of teenage girls."--Rachel Simmons, author of Odd Girl Out

"So chock-full of practical wisdom that I read it straight through twice, then recommended it to every person I know who has a daughter. This book will, no question, make you a better--and a saner--parent of your adolescent girl."--Peggy Orenstein, author of Girls and Sex

"There are books about teenagers that are smart. And there are books about teenagers that are practical. Lisa Damour, thankfully, provides us with one that is both. With palpable empathy and understanding for adolescent girls and their families, Damour equips parents with a flexible blueprint for anticipating challenges and encouraging growth in their daughters. If you have a daughter (or were a daughter!), Untangled is mandatory reading."--Madeline Levine, Ph.D., author of The Price of Privilege
