Cannon School to host bestselling author Julie Lythcott-Haims
CONCORD — Cannon School will welcome Julie Lythcott-Haims, New York Times bestselling author of “How To Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Over-Parenting Trap and Prepare Your Child for Success,” on Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. on the Poplar Tent Road campus in Concord.
This event, presented by the Maria DeHaas Speaker Series, is free and open to the public.
Lythcott-Haims spent a decade at Stanford University as the dean of freshmen, where she noticed a troubling trend — the rise of “helicopter parenting” — parents who were overly involved in the day-to-day life of their children.
She used that experience, as well as research and insight from raising two children of her own, to write a book of advice about how to raise successful kids without over-parenting.
Due to the overwhelming popularity of the book, Cannon School expects that this will be a packed event. Reservations may be made at www.cannonschool.org/speakerseries.
