What is Hurried Child Syndrome?
David Elkind, the psychologist behind Hurried Child Syndrome.
Technology and over scheduling is taking over our kids' lives.
Kids are more stressed than they have ever been.
How Added Stress is Affecting Our Children.
The largest concern about the hurrying of children and the over scheduling of them is that this can cause them to begin internalizing their feelings. They are beginning to keep secret their depression and self-esteem issues. The most common physical symptoms for depression may not be noticeable by anyone other than the child. They include stomach ache, diarrhea, nervous twitches, headache, hyperactivity, stutter, muscle tension, and bed-wetting.
