    Love this author/psychologist. Her premise this book - anxiety and stress in teens isn't always a bad thing. It can be put to good use. It's a "sophisticated warning system". *A helpful strategy when a teen is feeling anxious about say, bombing the piano recital, play Whats-the-wor...

    "Girls often feel stressed because they overestimate the difficulty of a situation and underestimate their ability to deal with it. When they avoid a situation, they miss the opportunity to correct that perception and recognize their own strength." I work in schools, and like Damour...

    I loved Damour?s first book (Untangled) and frequently read her pieces in the NY Times. What I like about her writing style is that it?s not repetitive (like much of the self-help genre, which in general can be tedious bc the whole book can be summed up in one paragraph). Here, Dam...

    Our teens, especially girls today, are under way more pressure than we were at that age. People are quick to say girls have "anxiety issues" when it's actually unnecessary pressure put on them at too young of an age. Dr. Damour's expertise in this area as a therapist and school counsel...

    I think Lisa Damour gives the best parenting advice for raising adolescent girls. This would be 5 stars in the parenting department except that I don't think it really adds much to the combination of her first book. Untangled, and her NYT column on parenting girls. ...

    I received Under Pressure as an ARC from a goodreads giveaway. Firstly, this book is written for parents and I read it as a therapist. It has a lot of helpful information, and some good pieces of advice. I think it could be very helpful for someone that is struggling with the impacts o...

    To quote my graduate advisor, "This piece is less magical than [her] first." My 13-year-old daughter and I both appreciated Untangled and took many nuggets it from it that have informed some of our behavior and decisions, large and small. Parts of Under Pressure feel spot-on to me a...

    This is a really good book about anxiety/stress and girls. While it doesn't discuss boys there are definitely some things you can apply to both sexes. If you have a girl anywhere from upper elementary on to their late teens this is a useful book about how to help girls navigate the wor...

    Full disclosure, I got this book for free in exchange for a review, and I was feeling kinda meh about reading it. That said, once I started it, I quickly went from "oh well, this is fine" to "I am never letting go of this book" within a few pages. I want it known first of all that t...

    I would highly recommend this to any parent, teacher, or administrator! It is written directly to parents of girls, especially preteen and teen girls, but as the mom of 1 daughter and 3 sons, there are lot of good thoughts and discussion fodder for boys here too. This is one I will com...
