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). She is deeply interested in what prevents people from living meaningful, fulfilling lives.
How to Raise an Adult emerged from Julie’s decade as Stanford University’s Dean of Freshmen, where she was known for her fierce advocacy for young adults and her fierce critique of the growing trend of parental involvement in the day-to-day lives of college students. She received the university’s Lloyd W. Dinkelspiel Award for creating “the” atmosphere that defines the undergraduate experience, and toward the end of her tenure as dean she began speaking and writing widely on the harm of helicopter parenting. How to Raise an Adult has been published in over two dozen countries and gave rise to a TED talk that became one of the top TED Talks of 2016 with over three million views, and counting, as well as a sequel which will be out in 2019. Real American details Julie’s 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.” Julie is a graduate of Stanford University, Harvard Law School, and California College of the Arts. She lives in Silicon Valley with her partner of thirty years, their two teenagers, and her mother.

Parenting is more than just ensuring children’s health,safety and well-being. Parents are their children’s first teachers, serving as their learning models. Values imparted by parents and the examples they set will have a significant impact on the development of children, and becoming who they are. Their attitudes to education can inspire their offspring to take charge of their own education journey. With so many different parenting styles and methods, which one is the best? Besides being a renowned singer and author, Dr. Agnes Chan is also a parent of three boys who went to Stanford. With a doctorate in education, she will discuss parenting and its impact on children’s education. She will also explore the role of women today and how to successfully juggle home, children and career.
Dr. Agnes Chan is a renowned singer in Asia and author of more than 90 books. Her book, “50 Education Methods: from the mother who puts three sons into Stanford” became the bestselling book in Hong Kong in 2016. She received her Ph.D. from the School of Education at Stanford University, and has taught at universities in Japan and Hong Kong for more than 30 years. She has received numerous awards both for her music and writing. She was decorated by the Emperor of Japan with the Order of the Rising Sun.
