Grown and Flown: A Conversation on How to Support Your Teen, Stay Close as a Family, and Raise Independent Adults
Research confirms that the role parents play in the later part of their children’s lives—from the final days of childhood to the threshold of adulthood—is as important as any other life stage. This is true more now than ever, as parents and young adults face uncertainty and an inability to plan into the future as they were once able to do.
Lisa Heffernan and Mary Dell Harrington’s online parenting community, Grown and Flown, is the #1 site for parents of teens, young adults, and college students and has been featured in The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, People, Today, and other national media outlets.
Their book, Grown and Flown: How to Support Your Teen, Stay Close as a Family, and Raise Independent Adults is the one-stop resource for parenting and “launching” teens and young adults. The new paperback edition includes never-before-published material that covers everything from the monumental (how to let your kids go) to the mundane (how to shop for a dorm room). Organized by topic, the book draws expert advice from physicians, psychologists, educators, and writers, including past FAN speakers Lisa Damour, Ph.D. (FAN ’19 and ’20), Frank Bruni (FAN ’15), and Rachel Simmons (FAN ’18).
Ms. Heffernan will be in conversation with another FAN favorite, Julie Lythcott-Haims (FAN '15 and '17).
This event will be recorded and available on the FAN website and our YouTube channel.
