“If you’re overfocused on your kid, you’re quite likely under-focusing on your own passion. Despite what you may think, your kid is not your passion. If you treat them as if they are, you’re placing them in the very untenable and unhealthy role of trying to bring fulfillment to your life. Support your kid’s interests, yes. Be proud—very proud—of them. But find your own passion and purpose. For your kid’s sake and your own, you must.” ― Julie Lythcott-Haims, How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success Author of NYT bestseller How to Raise an Adult. TED talk on overparenting a “Top Talk of 2016". Mom of two teens with my partner of 30 years. Former Stanford dean. Former corporate lawyer JulieLythcottHaims.com
