PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT | How to Raise an Adult in Times of Crisis

Upon its release in 2015, Julie Lythcott-Haims’ provocative manifesto, How to Raise an Adult, turned helicopter parenting on its head and offered a new path to parenting independent children to self-sufficient adulthood. Now in 2021, parents are facing very different realities like remote learning, work from home, and the confluence of multiple crises. In this session, she shares timely advice for allowing children to make their own mistakes and develop the resilience, resourcefulness, and inner determination necessary during challenging times. She draws special attention to talking to kids about race and systemic racism and building independence skills even when social distancing.
