“Just wait till she’s a teenager!”
Whether your daughter is about to become a teenager or she’s already in the teenage years, parents are warned that it may feel like a tangled mess for you or for her. However, there is a predictable pattern to how girls grow from adolescents into thriving adults. When parents know what makes their daughter tick, they can embrace and enjoy the challenge of raising a healthy, happy young woman.
Lisa’s visit will provide parents, educators, and students a blueprint to the seven distinct–and absolutely normal–developmental transitions that turn girls into grown-ups, including:
- Parting with Childhood
- Joining a New Tribe
- Harnessing Emotions
- Contending with Adult Authority
- Planning for the Future
- Entering the Romantic World
- and Caring for Herself
Lisa draws on decades of experience and the latest research to give parents a framework for understanding and normalizing the ups and downs of raising a teenage girl while providing reassuring evidence and realistic advice about the developmental and psychological growth that is the result of transitioning through these stages. Untangled explains what’s going on, prepares parents for what’s to come, and lets them know when it is time to worry.
