Julie Lythcott-Haims: How to Raise an Adult
Join New York Times bestselling author, Julie Lythcott-Haims and learn how to break free of the overparenting trap and prepare your kids for success. Drawing on research, on conversations with admissions officers, educators, and employers, and on her own insights as a mother and as a student dean, Julie highlights the ways in which overparenting harms children, their stressed-out parents, and society at large.
While empathizing with the parental hopes and, especially, fears that lead to overhelping, Julie offers practical strategies that underline the importance of allowing children to make their own mistakes and develop the resilience, resourcefulness, and inner determination necessary for success.
