Nicole Arca
In collaboration with Fusion Academy, Sierra Canyon proudly presented Julie Lythcott-Haims in the Upper Campus Gymnasium on Thursday, April 20th.

Best-selling author and renowned speaker Lythcott-Haims inspired all EK-12th grade faculty in the afternoon, and hundreds of parents at night with her message of student self-efficacy and how we may help in our children's development and fulfillment.

Lythcott-Haims is the author of How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success, in which she provides wisdom and valuable knowledge about the role of parenting and its relation to a child’s independence and definition of success. Her talk at Sierra Canyon shared the key points and insights published in her book and more. 

After speaking to parents for over two hours, her words were acknowledged with a standing ovation and cheers. Lythcott-Haim's impassioned delivery was admired by all. Parents lined up for a book signing afterwards.
