“Helicopter parent” is the modern putdown for the overprotective mom and dad none of wanted as a kid but so many of us have become as adults. Is it too late for us to change over hovering ways?
It’s not, according to author and former Stanford University dean Julie Lythcott-Haims, who joins us on the latest Modern Dads Podcast to talk about her new book, How to Raise an Adult: How to Raise an Adult, the new book by Julie Lythcott-Haims
Lythcott-Haims’ book, which City Dads Group gave a glowing review to back in June, recounts stories of young adults who have been left devoid of the basic life skills that are crucial to surviving in a dangerous unforgiving world because of their overprotective mothers and fathers. It is, as our reviewer said, “packed with solutions for preparing your children for independence while letting them know that you love them and want to be included in their lives now that they are adults.”
