Publisher's Description

With the first edition of The Hurried Child, David Elkind emerged as the voice of parenting reason, calling our attention to the crippling effects of hurrying our children through life. He showed that by 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 more than two decades since this book first appeared, new generations of parents have inadvertently stepped up the assault on childhood, in the media, in schools, and at home. In the third edition of this classic (2001), Dr. Elkind provided a detailed, up-to-the-minute look at the Internet, classroom culture, school violence, movies, television, and a growing societal incivility to show parents and teachers where hurrying occurs and why. And as before, he offered parents and teachers insight, advice, and hope for encouraging healthy development while protecting the joy and freedom of childhood. In this twenty-fifth anniversary edition of the book, Dr. Elkind delivers important new commentary to put a quarter century of trends and change into perspective for parents today.

Author Bio

Editorial Reviews

Wall Street Journal, 9/4
"[The first book to] mourn the loss of play and leisure time [for kids]."

Washington Post, 11/5/09
"Read The Hurried Child by psychologist David Elkind. It explains the development of children so well and gives such good reasons for slowing them down that you'll want to give a copy to every parent you know."

Washington Post, 3/12/10
"To learn more about children and how they grow, read The Hurried Child…It’s one of the great classics of parenthood."
 
The Jewish Week, 6/23/10
"If you want to know more about the harmful effects of micro-managing our children’s lives, read The Hurried Child…[Elkind’s] main theme remains relevant more than 25 years after its initial publishing."
