Hurried Child

By: Jeffrey Belteton


The child is expected by his parents to perform well beyond his or her level of mental, social or emotional capabilities. Basically, parents over schedule their children's lives, push them hard for academic success, and expect them to behave and react as miniature adults. So this pressures the child and stresses the child to do things that they may not be ready yet in society today.
Other reasons are a result of current commerce. Those who merchandise to children these days understand that parents aren't dictating them anymore about what to eat, wear or watch.
