The Over Scheduled Child: Avoiding the Hyper-Parenting Trap : Hyper-Parenting addresses a hot-button issue: the over-scheduling and over-enriching of our children. Lists and schedules, meetings and appointments, the need to be the best no matter what - doesn't it sound like your life? It's not; it's your child's. Parenting today has come to resemble a relentless to-do list. Even parents with the best intentions strive to micro-manage every detail of their kid's life and live in constant fear that their child will underperform in any area - academic, social, athletic. The fact is, parenting should not consume every last bit of our time, money, and energy. It's not good for us as parents, and it's potentially dangerous for our children and their healthy development. Luckily, there is a cure for hyper-parenting. In their groundbreaking new book, renowned child psychiatrist Alvin Rosenfeld, M.D., and longtime family-issues journalist Nicole Wise identify and attack this rampant phenomenon. With the strength of their combined professional and personal experience, Rosenfeld and Wise tell you how to identify the hyper-parent in yourself. They also prescribe clear, comforting steps to make parenting a happier and healthier experience for you and your child.
