Are you undermining your child’s future by doing too much for them? Julie Lythcott-Haims shares with us the frightening consequences of over-parenting. She calls it the “checklisted childhood,” and it’s leaving a generation of kids who are anxious and overwhelmed by life. In this podcast we talk about how to avoid the overparenting trap.

My takeaways:

  1. We’re overparenting from our love, our fear, and our ego. Our own sense of self is wrapped up in our kids’ accomplishments.
  2. What matters most is that we love our children unconditional and give them chores.
  3. The importance of our own self-fulfillment – “Why are you on the sidelines of another person’s life?”

BIO: Julie Lythcott-Haims believes in humans, and is interested in what prevents humans from thriving. Her writings and talks currently focus on overparenting, racism, and #adulting. Find out more about Julie here.
