Lisa Damour is a psychologist, best-selling author, monthly New York Times columnist, and regular contributor to CBS News.
With schools closing and events getting canceled across the country due to the spread of the coronavirus, parents should have the proper tools to have a conversation about the virus with their children across all ages. CBS News medical contributor Dr. Tara Narula and CBS News contributor and child psychologist Lisa Damour join CBS News' Jim Axelrod with advice on how to start those conversations. Dr. Narula offers the medical facts about coronavirus and COVID-19, while Damour explains how to ease kids' anxiety, as well as their disappointment over canceled events and disruptions to their schedules.
Only on the "CBS This Morning" podcast, child psychologist and CBS News contributor Lisa Damour joins CBS News’ Reena Ninan to answer parenting questions. From whether parents should provide alcohol to minors in a controlled environment to addressing anxiety in children, Damour offers some advice on what parents can do. She also provides some help on how to address death and loss with a child, handling tantrums and parenting a bully.

“Stay positive. Make a change for yourself. Tell others about your change. Feel good and hopefully, the message will spread.”Gemma NewmanWelcome to the 7th annual Best of the RRP Anthology — our way of taking a moment to reflect on the year, express gratitude and give thanks for taking this journey with us.To be honest, I didn’t think we could top 2018 -- but we did. It’s been an incredible year. I'm deeply indebted to all my extraordinary guests. And unbelievably proud of the library we dedicated ourselves to creating over the last twelve months.To prepare for the year ahead, it’s critical to pause. To reflect back. Celebrate the victories. Take inventory of the missteps. And visualize the goals you wish to self-actualize in the months ahead. I believe in this process. And I feel strongly that 2020 holds the potential energy manifest your aspirations.It is in this spirit that we created a tradition of closing each year with a look in the rear view with a 2-episode compilation of clips excerpted from many of year's best guests.Consider these next two shows as a love letter. My way of saying thank you. I see you. I believe in you. And I believe in the power we all have to do, be and live better. To step into our best, most authentic selves. And in turn, share freely what we have learned in service of others.For long-time listeners, the next two episodes are intended to launch you into 2020 with renewed vigor and intention.

“We run the risk now of raising a generation that is stressed about being stressed, and anxious about being anxious.”Lisa Damour, PhDToday’s expedition takes us into the beautifully mysterious world of parenting, with a specific lens on navigating the perplexing vicissitudes of the teenage girl — one of the most beguiling and opaque creatures I've encountered in my 52 years.I have been a parent and step-parent for two decades. Along the way, I successfully helped raise two young boys. Sure, I made many mistakes. But I also did a few things right. Today they are both amazing young men. And yet somehow that experience failed to adequately prepare me for the rather unique challenges I face guiding a teenage daughter towards adulthood — a joy that has at times brought me to my knees.To elevate my parenting game, I began searching for greater insight into the idiosyncratic psyche of the female adolescent. That quest continuously referred me to one notable expert: Lisa Damour, PhD.A teen whisperer par excellence, Lisa is a Yale educated psychotherapist with a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Michigan who specializes in education and child development. But she is best known for her two New York Times bestselling books — Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood*; and her newest release, Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls*.The parent of two teenage girls herself, Lisa writes the monthly Adolescence column for the New York Times. In addition to her private consulting and psychotherapy practice, she is a regular contributor to CBS News, speaks internationally, is a Senior Advisor to the Schubert Center for Child Studies at Case Western Reserve University, and serves as the Executive Director of Laurel School’s Center for Research on Girls.This is all a long way of saying that when it comes to adolescents and teens, Lisa knows her shit.Today's conversation deconstructs the particular emotional overload and unique social pressures young people face – everything from sex and drugs to body image, grades, navigating social media and everything in between. By better understanding the nature of these dynamics, and how they specifically impact our young ones, we glean insight into how to optimally parent through them.In addition, we discuss the recent astronomical rise in stress and anxiety in young girls — what accounts for it, and what it means.We also cover the common mistakes many parents (myself included) often make. We delve deep into the importance of open communication and how to foster it.Finally, Lisa imparts a myriad of strategies to optimally pilot the healthy developmental transitions that specifically girls (but also boys) undergo as they mature into grownups so that we, as parents, can help cultivate self-esteem and self-efficacy in the next generation under our charge.If you are a parent of young humans trying to make the right moves — or just want to better understand how young people think and why they behave as they do — then this episode is appointment listening.Lisa’s books have been instrumental in improving how I parent my daughters, so this is a meeting of great personal significance I have been hotly awaiting for some time.They don’t call her the teen whisperer for nothing.
