Parenting to a Degree coverJoin ​the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE) for an informal discussion of Laura Hamilton's book, Parenting to a Degree: How Family Matters to College Women's Success.

"Helicopter parents—the kind that continue to hover even in college—are one of the most ridiculed figures of twenty-first-century parenting, criticized for creating entitled young adults who boomerang back home. But do involved parents really damage their children and burden universities? In this book, sociologist Laura T. Hamilton illuminates the lives of young women and their families to ask just what role parents play during the crucial college years."

All are welcome -- you are not required to have read the whole book! With luck, it will be a beautiful day, and we can meet outside on the Terrace (look for the WISCAPE banner). If it rains, we'll move inside to the Rathskeller.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP so we can be sure to save enough tables for everyone.

We hope to see you there!
