He showed that by blurring the boundaries of what is age appropriate, by expecting -- or imposing -- too much too soon, we force our kids to grow up too fast, to mimic adult sophistication while secretly yearning for innocence. In the more than two decades since, our society has inadvertently stepped up the assault on childhood through in the media, in schools, and at home. Dr. Elkind provides an updated look at the Internet, classroom culture, school violence, movies, television, and a growing societal incivility to show parents and teachers where hurrying occurs and why. As before, he offers parents and teachers insight, advice, and hope for encouraging healthy development while protecting the joy and freedom of childhood."@en ;
