Untangled : Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood Paperback



We expect an enormous amount from our teenage girls in a world where they are bombarded with messages about how they should look, behave, succeed.

Yet we also speak as though adolescence is a nightmare rollercoaster ride for both parent and child, to be endured rather than enjoyed. In Untangled, world authority and clinical psychologist Lisa Damour provides an accessible, detailed, comprehensive guide to parenting teenage girls.

She believes there is a predictable blueprint for how girls grow; seven easily recognisable 'strands' of transition from childhood through adolescence and on to adulthood.

Girls naturally develop at different rates, typically on more than one front, and the transition will be unique to every girl. Each chapter describes a phase, such as 'contending with adult authority' and 'entering the romantic world', with hints and tips for parents and daughters, and a 'when to worry' section.

Damour writes sympathetically and clearly, providing a practical and helpful guide for any parent, and for teenage girls too.
