Parenting with Purpose

How to Raise an Adult
March 15, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at MHS Arts Center

Julie Lythcott-Haims draws on research; conversations with experts; and her own insights as Stanford’s Dean of Freshmen to highlight how overparenting harms children, their stressed-out parents, and society at large. While empathizing with the parental hopes and fears that lead to overhelping, Julie offers practical alternative strategies that underline the importance of allowing children to make their own mistakes and develop the resilience, resourcefulness, and inner determination necessary for success. Relevant to parents with kids of all ages.
