Author and educator Jessica Lahey joins us to talk about:

  • The great backfiring of "helicopter parenting"
  • The problem with viewing our children's accomplishments as a measure of our own success
  • How many of us can unwittingly look to our children to provide the feedback we need to feel like we're doing our jobs well, and how this ultimately hurts us both
  • Ideally we want to raise our children for independence, equipping them to live in the reality of the world. But, HOW?
