This episode is with Julie Lythcott-Haims and we talk about her new book, Your Turn: How to Be an Adult, which is about how to be a good person and have a good life.

We also talked about how to raise kids so that they don’t need a book to learn how to be an adult. Julie also shared some really great tips about truly seeing our children. 

Julie Lythcott-Haims believes in humans and is deeply interested in what gets in our way. Her work encompasses writing, speaking, teaching, mentoring, and activism.

We cover:

  • How Julie’s new book is changing the narrative around the heaviness of living in today’s society
  • What fending is and how can you best prepare your kids for when they do get to the fending stage
  • The four step method to teaching any kid any skill
  • How to parent our kids the way they need us to parent them
  • Unpacking privilege in gentle parenting

She is the New York Times bestselling author of How to Raise an Adult which gave rise to a popular TED Talk. Her second book is the critically-acclaimed and award-winning prose poetry memoir Real American, which illustrates her experience as a Black and biracial person in white spaces. 


Julie holds degrees from Stanford, Harvard Law, and California College of the Arts. She currently serves on the boards of Common Sense Media, Black Women’s Health Imperative, Narrative Magazine, and on the Board of Trustees at California College of the Arts. She serves on the advisory boards of LeanIn.Org, Parents magazine and Baldwin For the Arts.

She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her partner of over thirty years, their itinerant young adults, and her mother.
