Children often become frustrated when overloaded with activities.
Is Hurried Child Syndrome legit?
I think Yes.
After reading all of the articles about hurried child syndrome I do believe it is a legitimate disorder. Children are being rushed to grow up through the media, society and their own parents. Kids aren't allowed to be kids any more, they are overloaded with piano lessons, school work, athletics, and academics.
How do we fix it?
There is healthy when it comes to parenting some structure is necessary for kids to develop into healthy adults. However you must as a parent allow time for a kid to be a kid, and explore using their imagination.
