Julie Lythcott-Haims is the author of the New York Times best-selling book How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success. The book emerged from her decade as Stanford University’s Dean of Freshmen, where she was known for her fierce advocacy for young adults and received the university’s Lloyd W. Dinkelspiel Award for creating “the” atmosphere that defines the undergraduate experience, and was also known for her fierce critique of the growing trend of parental involvement in the day-to-day lives of college students. Toward the end of her tenure as dean she began speaking and writing widely on the harm of helicopter parenting. How to Raise an Adult is being published in over two dozen countries and gave rise to a TED Talk that came out in September of 2016, and a sequel which will be out in 2018. In the meantime, her memoir on race, Real American, will be out in Fall 2017. Julie is a graduate of Stanford University, Harvard Law School, and California College of the Arts.

"Three standing ovations in three days from three different groups of stakeholders is a pretty good record. [Julie's] messages about the dangers of over parenting - with the millennial generation being overprotected, overly directed, and over handled - were relevant and thought-provoking."
