Tidewater Learning Connection Presents: How to Raise an Adult

From February 15, 2018 until February 15, 2018


Tidewater Learning Connection Presents: How to Raise an Adult
Keynote Address by Julie Lythcott-Haims, Former Stanford University Dean
Thursday, February 15 at 7 - 8:30 PM
Cocktail Reception before the keynote, 6 PM

Tidewater Learning Connection (TLC) is an initiative of the Hebrew Academy of Tidewater Konikoff Center of Learning. The mission of TLC is to bring high quality parenting and educational programming to the Hampton Roads area.

This year’s inaugural TLC Program features a keynote address by Julie Lythcott-Haims, author of How to Raise an Adult: How to Break Free of the OverParenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success. Julie Lythcott-Haims served as dean of freshman and undergraduate advising at Stanford University, where she received the Dinkelspiel Award. She encountered an increasing number of students who, as a result of hyper-attentive parenting, lacked strong sense of self and were poorly equipped to handle the demands of adult life. Julie Lythcott-Haims has spoken and written widely on the phenomenon of helicopter parenting, and her work has appeared on numerous TED Talks, on PBS, in Forbes, and in the Chicago Tribune. Julie holds a BA from Stanford University and a JD from Harvard Law School.

Our inaugural program also will present two workshop leaders who will focus on topics related to raising resilient children. Erin Walsh, psychologist, presenter, and professor with Mind Positive Parenting, and Michele Tryon, a certified child life specialist and community outreach coordinator with the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters, will lead dual track workshops for parents and educators on February 16, 2018, from 9:30am to 1:00pm. Erin will speak about brain development and how it relates to children’s academic performance. Michele will discuss managing stress in the family.
