Parent Education

Campbell Hall’s Parent Education Speaker Series programs brings together parents and other members of the school community with experts in a variety of fields to engage in timely, thought-provoking discussions that inform and enrich our relationships with ourselves and the children under our care. Participants should expect to take away with them important information, a stronger sense of community, and at times, a completely new perspective. 

Please join us—friends welcome!

    November 12, 2019
    TIME: 7:00 pm
    LOCATION: Lower Gym
    SPEAKER: Julie Lythcott-Haims

    Julie will speak to our community about the experiences she details in her critically acclaimed memoir Real American about her personal battle with the low self-esteem that American racism routinely inflicts on people of color. The child of an African-American father and a white British mother, Julie shows how microaggressions in addition to blunt-force insults can puncture a person’s inner life with a thousand sharp cuts. Real American expresses also, through Julie’s path to self-acceptance, the healing power of community in overcoming the hurtful isolation of being incessantly considered “the other.”

    Former corporate lawyer and Stanford University Dean, Julie Lythcott-Haims is the author of the New York Times best-selling book How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success (2015) and Real American: A Memoir (2017). Her work has appeared throughout the media including in the New York Times, The Atlantic, Parents, the PBS News Hour, and numerous podcasts and radio shows. She is deeply interested in what prevents people from living meaningful, fulfilling lives.
