Please join Dr. McDuffie and The Rhoades School Foundation for a parent coffee featuring the screening of a TED talk with Julie Lythcott Haims, author of " How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success".
Thursday, May 4th, 8:45-10:00 in the Kittle Auditorium. This event is for parents only.
Based on her best-selling novel with the same title, Lythcott-Haims offers a unique perspective and authority to the subject as Stanford’s former dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising. Her TED talk discusses the over-parenting trap that exists in our society today, and how to escape the trap to ensure the same goal is attained, that is, to mold your offspring into thriving adults. “We speak of dreams as boundless, limitless realms,” Lythcott-Haims writes. “But in reality often we create parameters, conditions and limits within which our kids are permitted to dream — with a checklist childhood as the path to achievement”.
