Presentation will address “TRICK” of Parenting: How to Raise Self-Responsible People in Self-Responsible World and aim to answer why this topic is important: how parents’ fear is impacting the way children are being raised. “Children are afraid to be who they are, to take risks and to stand up to injustice”. Data shows that suicide rates are high, prevalence of depression, and why it’s important for parents to rethink their roles in helping children being able to identify, cope, and be resilient in face of challenge and adversity. Esther knows what it takes to raise successful children. Two of her daughters are powerful players in Silicon Valley: Susan Wojcicki is CEO of Google’s YouTube and Anne Wojcicki is co-founder and CEO of DNA testing company 23andMe. Her daughter, Janet Wojcicki, is a professor of pediatrics at the University of California at San Francisco.
