How to Raise An Adult
Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare your Kids for SuccessAudiobook CD - 2015
Julie Lythcott-Haims draws on research, on conversations with admissions officers, educators, and employers, and 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, she 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.
