2017: How to Raise an Adult

Julie Lythcott-Haims, author of NYT Bestseller How to Raise an Adult and former Dean at Stanford University, offered practical alternative strategies that underline the importance of allowing children to make their own mistakes and develop the resilience, resourcefulness and inner determination necessary for success.  The sold out crowd was riveted to her every word.  Parents attended workshops supporting resiliency in the home.  Professionals attended an afternoon workshop on independence in the classroom and allowing children to stumble and gain the confidence to continue to try again.
