“How to raise kids--without overparenting”
Our TED talk on Saturday, 5/12/18, is by Julie Lyhcott-Haims entitled “How to raise kids--without overparenting.” By loading kids with high expectations and micromanaging their lives at every turn, parents aren't actually helping. At least, that's how Julie Lythcott-Haims sees it. With passion and wry humor, the former Dean of Freshmen at Stanford makes the case for parents to stop defining their children's success via grades and test scores. Instead, she says, they should focus on providing the oldest idea of all: unconditional love.
Julie is also the author of the New York Times bestseller, “How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success.”
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, and the TED talks feature experts in a variety of fields who present unique ways of looking at their respective fields of expertise.
Everyone is welcome to these free sessions.
A discussion will take place after the lecture.
