I was recently at a talk given by Julie Lythcott-Haims, the author of the book How To Raise an Adult (and the former dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising at Stanford University) and I loved it! Not only because it supported so many of my own thoughts on parenting, but also because she is a dynamic and very engaging speaker. If you haven’t already, do get your hands on the book. I’ve just started it but you can read a NY times review here and the book is available here.
Thoughts for today? Well, I have two quotes that I pasted into my journal and that seem very appropriate for today. In case you can’t read my writing, the first quote is by author Khaled Hosseini. ‘Children aren’t coloring books. You don’t get to fill them with your favorite colors.’- Khaled Hosseini
And this one (cut out from an O magazine a long time ago and pasted in) is one of my favorites by historian and writer, Michael Ignatieff.
