Want to learn how to raise self-confident kids who are able to handle life's ups and downs? Yeah, me too! I'm giving away TWO FREE TICKETS to hear Julia Lythcott-Haims, former Dean of Freshman Students at Stanford University, speak on Wednesday, February 8th, 7:30 at Providence Day School. She'll be discussing her book, How To Raise an Adult. (Loved it!) As a dean at Stanford she noticed an increasing number of students who lacked a strong sense of self and were ill equipped to handle life's everyday challenges. Lythcott-Haims will discuss the latest on, how over-parenting harms children, parental stress and how her research can help YOU! I'll be there (mostly because I am STILL a recovering helicopter parent) and I'd love for you to join me! Want to win TWO FREE TICKETS? Comment below with your name & email address and you'll be entered to win. Winner will be drawn on January 27. For more information or to purchase tickets visit
