Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the first two editions of this landmark work, Dr. David Elkind eloquently called our attention to the dangers of exposing our children to overwhelming pressures, pressures that can lead to a wide range of childhood and teenage crises. Internationally recognized as the voice of reason and compassion, Dr. Elkind showed that in blurring the boundaries of what is age appropriate, by expecting-or imposing-too much too soon, we force our kids to grow up far too fast.In the two decades since this groundbreaking book first appeared, we have compounded the problem, inadvertently stepping up the assault on childhood in the media, in schools, and at home. 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.

Book News Annotation:

Elkind (child study, Tufts U.) discusses how parents, schools, media, new technologies and research findings are threatening the modern concept of childhood. As antidotes to these stressful pressures, he supports Piaget's developmental ideas and other philosophies that view childhood as a worthy stage of life. Includes the preface to the 1988 edition of his 1981 landmark work.
