"My job is not to make them become what I would have them become, but to support them in becoming their glorious selves."
By loading kids with high expectations and micromanaging their lives at every turn, parents aren't actually helping. With passion and humor, Julie Lythcott-Haims, former Dean of Freshmen at Stanford, makes the case for parents to stop defining their children's success via grades and test scores. Instead, she says, they should focus on providing the oldest idea of all: unconditional love.
Great heartfelt talk.
