  1. I loved this episode. Thank you for sharing your personal experiences – the good and the bad! I am also really struggling with how involved I should be with my 4th grader, who is learning at home. I wanted to recommend the book “How to Raise an Adult,” which was written by a Stanford Dean of Freshmen and mom.
