“How to Raise Successful Kids – Without Over-Parenting”
TED Talk screening and discussion
Tracey Masella, LCSW
Silver Hill Hospital
Wednesday, January 24, 2018
Join us to view Julie Lythcott-Haims’ popular TED Talk on parental expectations and unconditional love.  The video will be followed by a discussion facilitated by Tracey Masella.  Tracey will help us understand how to stop over-parenting and help our children develop resilience.
Resilience is the ability to manage adversity, to pick ourselves up after we have fallen down.  In our communities, children are often rescued before they fall; our children are deprived of the opportunity to learn how to handle distress. We will discuss how to create a safe and effective family frame in which children learn to manage their lives effectively.
This presentation is appropriate for parents with children of all ages.
** A follow up book discussion will be held on February 28 at 10:00 AM at the Wilton Library.  Minimum of 15 registrants required for program to run. **

How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success
In How to Raise an Adult, Julie Lythcott-Halms draws on research, on conversations with admissions officers, educators, and employers, and on her own insights as a mother and as a student dean to highlight the ways in which overparenting harms children, their stressed-out parents, and society at large.  
Lythcott-Haims offers 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.
