About the Event
This talk has been made possible with the generous co-sponsorship of Rye Country Day School.
Many young adults speak about feeling not quite ready "to adult". Many are not even sure if they want to. What role are we parents playing in this process? With her trademark storytelling style, Julie is joining us for a frank conversation on supporting young adults in their all-important transition to a healthy and happy adulthood.
