How to Raise an Independent Adult: Over-parenting and its Consequences
Monday, Dec. 7, 2015
7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Convent of the Sacred Heart
San Francisco, CA 94115
"Helicopter parenting" is a term we have all heard in reference to overly involved and protective parents, but few use to describe themselves. Despite the best intentions, the "help" that parents provide can get in the way of a child’s development and, more insidiously, implies a lack of confidence in their ability to get things done without parental intervention.
Julie Lythcott-Haims will discuss how "the over-parenting herd has become a bully we feel the need to go along with" and she will suggest how we can modify our parenting to foster independence, creativity, and resilience in our young adults.
Easy online tickets at Eventbrite. Also available at the door ($5 for Lowell parents).
