Under pressure. Rescuing our children from the culture of hyper-parenting.

Carl Honoré, 2008, 320p

Giving a child ‘the best of everything’ robs her of the chance to make the best of what she has. This applies to every aspect of childhood, from education to sports, but especially to navigating the consumer culture.

We want to give our children all the best, but in a world where often more equals better, Honoré suggests we do less: less hurry, less pressure, less rote learning, less testing, less homework, less extracurricular sctivities. Because the best education is simply spending more time with our kids.
