Julie Lythcott-Haims’ presentation - How to Raise an Adult 


Date: Thursday, April 11

Time: 6-7:30 pm

Venue: Palo Verde Multi-purpose Room


    Based on her New York Times bestselling book by the same name, in this 

    talk Julie draws on her own insights as a mother and as a student dean 

    to highlight 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, 

    Lythcott-Haims inspires audiences to examine their behaviors and join 

    the growing movement to allow children to develop the resourcefulness, 

    resilience, and inner determination necessary for success.
