Head of School Book Club Series

Join HOS, Lauren Miller on Monday evenings as we discuss the fall book club book “How to Raise and Adult”
A New York Times best-seller.

Drawing on research, on conversations with admissions officers, educators, and employers, and on her own insights as a mother and as a student dean, Julie highlights the ways in which over-parenting harms children, their stressed-out parents, and society at large.

While empathizing with the parental hopes and, especially, fears that lead to over-helping, Julie offers practical strategies that underline the importance of allowing children to make their own mistakes and develop the resilience, resourcefulness, and inner determination necessary for success.
