SPECIAL EDITION: Jess Lahey Wants Us to Embrace the Gifts of Failure so We Can Raise Confident and Resilient Children


This special edition episode is powered by our friends at Dove Real Beauty Productions. To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Dove, we’re here at the Mom 2.0 Summit, creating conversations with inspiring women around the journey of self-discovery and redefining beauty. Jess Lahey is the co-host of the #AmWriting Podcast with KJ Dell’Antonia, and author of the The New York Times bestseller, The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed. She encourages parents and educators to confront the myths of perfection that we pass on to our kids and to trust our children as they start to make their own choices. In this episode, the Jesses discuss raising young girls with intention, modeling positive behavior, and overcoming the fear of failure.
