||The Hurried Child: Growing Up Too Fast Too Soon
||With the first two editions of this landmark work, Dr. David Elkind called our attention to the dangers of exposing children to overwhelming pressures - pressures that can lead to a wide range of childhood and teenage crises. Taking a detailed, up-to-the-minute look at the world of today's children and teens in terms of the Internet, classroom culture, school violence, movies, television, and a growing societal incivility, Dr. Elkind shows a whole new generation of parents where hurrying occurs, and why and what we can do about it.
