Under pressure : rescuing our children from the culture of hyper-parenting by Carl Honoré( Book )

"Delivering much more than a wake-up call, international author Carl Honore interviews experts in Europe, North America, and the Far East, talks to families around the world and sifts through the latest scientific research. Not only do we see the real dangers of micromanaging children, but Honore also shows us an emerging new movement inspiring many to slow down and find the natural balance between too little and too much. Blending reportage, inquiry, and true stories, Under Pressure is the first book to challenge the status quo by mapping out an alternative to the culture of hyperparenting that is presently pushing children and their parents to the brink."--Jacket

In Praise of Slow heralds a growing international movement of people dedicated to slowing down the pace of our contemporary times and enjoying a richer, fuller life as a result.??These days, almost everyone complains about the hectic pace of their lives. We live in a world where speed rules and everyone is under pressure to go faster. But when speed is king, anyone or anything that gets in our way, that slows us down, becomes an enemy. Thanks to speed, we are living in the age of rage.??Carl Honore has discovered a movement that is quickly working its way into the mainstream. Groups of people are developing a recipe for living better in a fast-paced, modern environment by striving for a new balance between fast and slow. In an entertaining and hands-on investigation of this new movement, Honore takes us from a Tantric sex workshop in a trendy neighbourhood in London, England to Bra, Italy, the home of the Slow Food, Slow Cities and Slow Sex movements. He examines how we can continue to live productive lives by embracing the tenets of the slow movement.??A challenging take on the cult of speed, as well as a corrective look at how we can approach our lives with new understanding, In Praise of Slow uncovers a movement whose time has come
Under pressure : how the epidemic of hyper-parenting is endangering childhood by Carl Honoré( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The parent screaming from the touchline at an eight-year-old to make an overlapping run; the pregnant mother playing Mozart to her unborn baby; the rigid schedule for babies, which develops into an agenda of activities for a young child - all these are familiar instances of hyper-parenting. With the pressure growing all the time for children to get into the best schools and universities, or to develop their nascent talents and become the next Tiger Woods or Williams sister, it has never been more difficult to be a child. In Carl Honore's brilliant follow-up to In Praise of Slow he makes an impassioned call for parents and teachers to allow children to grow up at a slower rate. Too often children today are burnt out by the time they reach their teens, thanks to a combination of tests and organised activities that fill their every waking moment. Where is the time to join their friends and play, or simply to sit and daydream? Surely there is something wrong with a parent who sends their child to see a psychotherapist after she comes third in a spelling bee in a New York school? Especially when that child is only six. By sifting through the latest scientific research and interviewing experts and families around the world, Carl Honore shows why parenting does not have to be a cross between a competitive sport and product development and why childhood does not have to be a rat race. Under Pressure will inspire readers to ease off, trust their instincts and find the natural balance between doing too much and too little for children. If we all managed that, perhaps our children would be allowed to have a childhood worthy of the name. Under Pressure shows how 'slow parenting' will benefit both the child and the parents, and ensure that we are developing a new generation of children healthy in body and mind."--Provided by publisher

Bajo presión : cómo educar a nuestros hijos en un mundo hiperexigente by Carl Honoré( Book )

22 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why do grown-ups have to take over everything'" This innocent question from acclaimed journalist and international bestselling author Carl HonorE'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. The mere mention of potty-training, ballet classes, preschool, ADD, or overeating is enough to spark a heated debate about the right way to raise our children. The problem is that despite the best intentions of all involved, the pressure to manage every detail of our children's lives from in utero through college is overwhelming. Delivering much more than a wake-up call, international bestselling author Carl HonorE interviews experts in Europe, North America, and the Far East, talks to families around the world and sifts through the latest scientific research. Not only do we see the real dangers of micromanaging children, but HonorE also shows us an emerging new movement inspiring many to slow down and find the natural balance between too little and too much. Blending the finest reportage, intellectual inquiry, and extraordinary true stories, Under Pressure is the first book to challenge the status quo by mapping out an alternative to the culture of hyperparenting that is presently pushing children and their parents to the brink

We live in the age of speed. We strain to be more efficient, to cram more into each minute, each hour, each day. Since the Industrial Revolution shifted the world into high gear, the cult of speed has pushed us to a breaking point. Consider these facts: Americans on average spend seventy-two minutes of every day behind the wheel of a car, a typical business executive now loses sixty-eight hours a year to being put on hold, and American adults currently devote on average a mere half hour per week to making love. Living on the edge of exhaustion, we are constantly reminded by our bodies and minds that the pace of life is spinning out of control. In Praise of Slowness traces the history of our increasingly breathless relationship with time and tackles the consequences of living in this accelerated culture of our own creation. Why are we always in such a rush' What is the cure for time sickness' Is it possible, or even desirable, to slow down' Realizing the price we pay for unrelenting speed, people all over the world are reclaiming their time and slowing down the pace -- and living happier, healthier, and more productive lives as a result. A Slow revolution is taking place. Here you will find no Luddite calls to overthrow technology and seek a preindustrial utopia. This is a modern revolution, championed by cell-phone using, e-mailing lovers of sanity. The Slow philosophy can be summed up in a single word -- balance. People are discovering energy and efficiency where they may have been least expected -- in slowing down. In this engaging and entertaining exploration, award-winning journalist and rehabilitated speedaholic Carl HonorE details our perennial love affair with efficiency and speed in a perfect blend of anecdotal reportage, history, and intellectual inquiry. In Praise of Slowness is the first comprehensive look at the worldwide Slow movements making their way into the mainstream -- in offices, factories, neighborhoods, kitchens, hospitals, concert halls, bedrooms, gyms, and schools. Defining a movement that is here to stay, this spirited manifesto will make you completely rethink your relationship with time
