Back by popular demand, our 2017-18 parent book club features How to Raise an Adult by Julie Lythcott-Haims. Julie Lythcott-Haims served as dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising at Stanford University. She has spoken and written widely on the phenomenon of helicopter parenting.
Come to one or all sessions! The parent learning calendar is also available to you on your Veracross Parent Portal.
A New York Times book review says: "Lythcott-Haims’s central message remains worthwhile: When parents laugh and enjoy the moment but also teach the satisfaction of hard work, when they listen closely but also give their children space to become who they are, they wind up with kids who know how to work hard, solve problems and savor the moment, too."
