How to Raise an Adult: Our DOING Is UNDOING Them
All parents want to help their children thrive. Yet as parents face increasing pressure, they are often tempted to do more for their children than is really helpful.
Based on the book How to Raise an Adult, our fall Parent Quarterly will focus on understanding the relationship between confidence and competence, and the importance of allowing children to make their own mistakes and develop resilience, resourcefulness, and inner determination. Learn to identify moments where parents’ responses can be particularly growth-producing for their kids, and where a little “benign neglect” can prove helpful.
This Parent Quarterly will serve as a kick-off for a Reading Group on How to Raise an Adult.
For parents of children ages 2 -18
