On this week’s “You’ve Got This,” I talk with Dr. Frowsa’ Booker-Drew about getting our kids ready to face the world as adults, a timely topic given the recent college admissions scandals.
Dr. Froswa’ Booker-Drew with Soulstice Consultancy is a partnership broker and relational leadership junkie. She’s also a connector, author, speaker, trainer and co-founder of the HERitage Giving Circle. She’s been quoted in Forbes, Ozy, Bustle, Huffington Post and other media outlets, and is currently vice president of community affairs for the State Fair of Texas. She is a contributor for several publications around the world, including as an advice columnist for professional women in Business Woman Media.
“The college admissions scandal demonstrates what happens when you don’t do that well. Every person that you look at is the sum total of their decisions. When you don’t start making good decisions early, your foundation can be shaky,” Frowsa’ said. “There’s a difference between raising children and raising adults, and I think for a lot of parents, they are busy raising children, so when those kids get to be adult age they still have to treat them as children.”
Listen to the podcast for more insights and suggestions about how we’re raising adults, not raising kids.
