Julie Lythcott-Haims, author of "How to Raise an Adult," speaks at Beth Emet Synagogue in Evanston at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 8.
Her book criticizes helicopter parenting and sets forth an alternate philosophy for raising preteens and teens to self-sufficient young adulthood.
Lythcott-Haims offers a rallying cry for those who wish to ensure that the next generation can take charge of their own lives with competence and confidence.
