How to raise successful kids -- without over-parenting | Julie Lythcott-Haims

Every parent wants to be proud with his child. Parents always try to find a way and make their children more successful and better person than themselves. It is just the nature of humans.

As we get older, and as we experience life, we know and understand the mistakes we made. So we want to make sure our offspring do not make the same mistake as we did.

But are we pushing our children too much? Julie Lynthcott-Haims served as Dean of Freshmen and Undergraduate Advising for more than a decade at Stanford University. And during her time, she understood one crucial mistake we make as parents.

By loading our kids with high expectations and micromanaging their lives at every turn, we are not helping. Instead, we are doing more harm than good.

In her TED talk, she advises parents to stop defining their children’s success via grades and test scores. Instead, they should provide the oldest idea of all: unconditional love. And then our children will be the best version of themselves.
