2017 Session | How to Raise an Adult: Resisting the Over-Parenting Trap

Julie Lythcott-Haims’ provocative manifesto, How to Raise an Adult, drew worldwide acclaim for outlining the harms of helicopter parenting and offering her strategy for raising preteens and teens to self-sufficient young adulthood.  Come hear Julie in person talk about her philosophy as to why over-parenting harms children, their stressed-out parents, and society at large. While empathizing with the parental hopes and, especially, fears that lead to over-helping, Lythcott-Haims will share 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. This session is relevant to parents of toddlers as well as of twentysomethings—and of special value to parents of teens—or anyone interested in ensuring that the next generation can take charge of their own lives with competence and confidence.
