Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood by Lisa Damour | Conversation Starters
Clinical psychologist Lisa Damour says girls' erratic behavior is healthy and natural. She assures parents that life with teenage girls doesn’t have to be a tangled mess.

Teenage development has been studied by experts and there is a blueprint to their development. Understanding how girls think and behave will illuminate parents and enables them to guide their daughters well. Untangled is a New York Times bestseller by Lisa Damour who heads the Center for Research on Girls at Laurel School. Psychology Today says reading the book is like having a therapist on call 24 hours a day. Damour’s stories and advice help parents avoid the “dangerous potholes.”
