With the first two editions of this landmark work, Dr David Elkind eloquently called our attention to the dangers of exposing our children to overwhelming pressures, pressures that can lead to low self-esteem, to teenage pregnancy, and even to teenage suicide. Internationally recognised as the voice of reason and compassion, Dr Elkind has shown that in blurring the boundaries of what is age appropriate, by expecting - or imposing - too much too soon, we force our kids to grow up too fast, to mimic adult sophistication while secretly yearning for innocence. In the two decades since this groundbreaking book first appeared, we have compounded the problem, indervertently stepping up the assault on childhood in the media, in schools, and at home. Taking a detailed, up-to-the-minute look at the Internet, classroom culture, school violence, movies, television, and a growing societal incivility, Dr Elkind here shows us where hurrying occurs today and why. And as before, he offers parents asnd teachers alike insight, advice and hope for encouraging healthy development while protecting the joy and freedom of childhood.
