Rescuing Our Children From the Culture of Hyper-parentingPaperback - 2009
From the publisher: "Why do grown-ups have to take over everything?" This innocent question from acclaimed journalist and international bestselling author Carl Honoré's son sparked a two-year investigation into how our culture of speed, efficiency, and success at all costs is damaging both parents and children. When the impulse to give children the best of everything runs rampant, parents, schools, communities, and corporations unwittingly combine forces to create over-scheduled, over-stimulated, and overindulged kids.
