Grown & Flown 

How to Support Your Teen, Stay Close as a Family, and Raise Independent Adults

Calling all parents of tweens, teens and young adults! Lisa Heffernan and Mary Dell Harrington, co-founders of Grown & Flown, the #1 online community for advice on raising teens and young adults, will talk about the their new book of the same name. This is their first visit in the Boston area to discuss this important book for parents of young people in high school and beyond!

They will offer practical tips for parents/caregivers as they support their older child’s transition to high school, college, work, and young adulthood. Topics they will address:

  • What your high school teacher really wants parents to know;
  • What you can do if your kid is having a hard time in school;
  • Sanity-preservers for parents during the college application process; and
  • How to stay close to your child during a time of great change & growth -for both of you!  
Books will be on sale for signing (by both authors!) by our partner, independent bookseller, Wellesley Books. 

"I am recommending this book to every parent I know and keeping a copy close at hand to answer parenting questions of my own.” —Lisa Damour, PhD, author of the New York Times bestsellers Under Pressure and Untangled


Lisa and Mary Dell are the co-founders of Grown and Flown, are writers, moms, and friends. They created Grown and Flown when each of their youngest kids were in high school and their oldest kids were in college. In their past incarnations, Mary Dell worked on television and media, and Lisa had a career that included Wall Street, politics, and writing. Lisa is a New York Times bestselling author of three books, including Goldman Sachs: The Culture of Success. They both live with their husbands in the New York City area, where they raised their families.
