More from Dr. Damour this month:
In her latest New York Times Well-Health Column titled, "How to Help Teens Weather Their Emotional Storms," Dr. Damour states that "Trying to help a deeply upset teenager - perhaps one undone by a social slight or flipping out about an upcoming test - is among the most common and stressful challenges in all of parenting. Amid all that stress, it's easy for well-meaning adults to make missteps."
In addition, Dr. Damour discussed how her work as a psychologist helps her write for parents of teens in the New York Times Insider section. In her piece she states that, "One thing I most love about being a psychologist is that the value of my ideas isn't measured by how good they sound to me, or even to other adults - only the results count. In some cases, I've struck on an effective approach to a tricky issue thanks to trial and error in my own close work with teenagers. In others, I have been led to psychologically grounded yet easy-to-implement solutions by wise and seasoned colleagues at Laurel School in Shaker Heights, Ohio, where I spend part of each week."
Dr. Damour also authored a piece in TIME Magazine titled, "You Can Track Almost Everything Your Kids Do Online. Here's Why That May Not Be a Good Idea."
