In the past year, I have recommended How to Raise an Adult by Julie Lythcott Haims to multiple friends. As a former Dean of Freshman at Stanford, Julie’s experience with stressed-out, high-achieving kids and her own experience as a parent has given her a unique vantage point to the toll over-parenting has had on our current generation of children. I had the opportunity to hear Julie speak in Nashville last night, and would gladly listen to her anytime. She was an engaging, relatable, dynamic speaker. To get her book, go here or listen to her TedTalk here.
