Show Notes

Parents and students are focusing on college admissions earlier and earlier, hoping to get a head start on what has become an increasingly competitive race through high school. They say they want their kids to be “happy” and “successful” in college, but if parents are obsessed with getting in, are they developing the right skills to help them thrive once there? Anxiety Expert and therapist Lynn Lyons shares her perspective after treating teens for decades through this process and well after.

We invite you to listen (or re-listen!) to our prior episode, “High Anxiety & Good Grades: Our Toxic Achievement Culture“.
