"This is the stuff of the best parenting advice . . . .A worthwhile read for every parent . . ." —The Chicago Tribune
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Julie Lythcott-Haims is the author of the New York Times best-selling book "How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap" and "Prepare Your Kid for Success". This book emerged from her decade as Stanford University's Dean of Freshmen where she was known for her fierce advocacy for young adults. She received the university's Lloyd W. Dinkelspiel Award for creating 'the' atmosphere that defines the undergraduate experience. Julie was equally known for her fierce critique of the growing trend of parental involvement in the daily lives of college students. Toward the end of her tenure as Dean, she began speaking and writing widely on the harm of helicopter parenting. "How to Raise an Adult" is being published in over two dozen countries. The book gave rise to a TED Talk in September 2016, and a sequel is expected in 2018. In the meantime, her memoir on race,"Real American", will be published in Fall 2017. Julie is a graduate of Stanford University, Harvard Law School, and California College of the Arts. She lives in Silicon Valley with her partner of over twenty-five years, their two teenagers, and her mother.
