In this seemingly competitive world that at times may feel like an achievement arms race, it is tempting to do everything in your power to make sure your child succeeds. Many parents jump in to solve problems for their children, schedule every waking hour of the day, over supervise daily activities and academic work, and offer an abundance of praise all along the way. But is that really what will make your child become a successful adult? How will the real world feel to a young adult who has grown up having their problems solved for them, having all obstacles moved out of their way, and accustomed to praise at every turn?
Join us on January 18 at 8:30 am for a Montessori Parents in Action (MPIA) group discussion on Julie Lythcott-Haims book, How to Raise an Adult.
We hope you will join in on this important discussion. Don’t worry if you haven’t read the book. This event is open to the public but we do ask that you call the main office to RSVP. We will have great information to take with you! To find out more about the author, visit her website at https://www.julielythcotthaims.com/videos.
