"This week, I sat in an auditorium with a couple hundred other parents at my daughter’s high school to hear what author and former freshman dean of Stanford University, Julie Lythcott-Haims, had to say about an epidemic of “over parenting” and the ways that this trend is influencing an entire generation of kids. Lythcott-Haims has experienced the problem first hand as a college administrator and has written the book, How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success, to document her experience and help parents reprioritize and refocus."
"To conclude the lecture, Julie gave the audience the ultimate take away. These are the two best things that each of us can do for our kids to help them become successful adults:
1 – Give them chores.
2 – Teach them to love.
Really. It’s that simple."
I am excited to read this book! I've heard excellent reviews from many of our parents and staff. I am also rereading/relistening to The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting by Brene Brown.
As I read the above blog, I immediately thought of way Brene talks about parenting and who we are as parents.
