Most parents have been warned about the stress of raising a teen girl: the friction with friends, the rush of emotions, the stinging rudeness followed by sweet affection. But a girl’s teen years don’t have to feel like a tangled mess for you or her. There’s a predictable pattern to how girls grow, a blueprint for adolescent development. Lisa Damour, Ph.D., director of the internationally renowned Laurel School’s Center for Research on Girls, explores this blueprint in her new book Untangled. Dr. Damour’s presentation and Q&A session at SCS will pull back the curtain on the teenage years and show why a teen girl’s erratic and confusing behaviour is actually healthy, necessary, and natural.
