Parents’ Coffee Helps Kick-Off the School Year

On Friday, August 25, the Parent’s Association hosted another exceptional parents’ coffee! During the coffee, Head of School Lisa Lyle shared a personal, lighthearted, yet serious take on her own parenting instincts and the MICDS Parent/School Partnership. She also shared several quotes from Julie Lythcott-Haims’ book, How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success, including:

“Between their late teens and early twenties, we want to launch a kid who still loves us and wants to see us, but who also has the wherewithal to make his or her way in life, with a lot of skills and the mind-set of ‘I think I can, I think I can!’”

Ms. Lyle encouraged parents to read Lythcott-Haims’ book (which can be found in the MICDS bookstore) if they haven’t already done so.

What a great way to jump-start the year!
