In American society, which highly values competition and the earlier the better mentality, the condition is pandemic, caused by the chronic exploitation of childrens talents and time for purposes other than their direct benefit, by a combination of pressures from parents, commercial media, and school.

Though much Hurrying can be defended as an earnest effort by parents to ensure a good future for David Elkind, Ph. Though much Hurrying can be defended as an earnest effort by parents to ensure a good future for a child—good grades to get into college, sports achievement to win a scholarship, etc. When children feel treated as an object to be controlled, rather than as human with feelings, dignity and a right to opinion, they translate this as rejection by those who have the most power to hurt or nurture them.

Especially once they reach adolescence and can articulate these feelings of manipulation, they may retaliate by underperforming or lashing out.

Modern schooling further hurries children by classifying them all into conformist, academic roles for the purpose of grade-getting, teacher job retention and school funding. Kids know they are pawns in a system that only cares for what they can produce. Unmanageable class size, with limited ability to protect students from violence in unsupervised settings or to teach them according to learning styles or aptitudes, long school days with few tangible rewards, as well as constant interruptions and distractions, create increasingly higher hoops children must jump through in order to appease those in authority over them.

In addition, visual media versus books that can be put down in order to process content deluge children with an overwhelming amount of images and concepts that they are developmentally too immature to process. As a result, children suffer information overload, fears and gross factual misunderstanding. The harmful effects of Hurrying can be mitigated by thoughtful teachers and parents. Hurrying is basically undue stress for children, and the effects are often the opposite of the intended purposes of childhood activity.

A Summary Of David Elkind's "The Hurried Child" As Told By A Future Educator

According to Elkind, The mass media targets children by persuading them to buy makeup, or clothes that they are not socially prepared for. In the same regard, parents and teachers push children past their physical and cognitive abilities, when they force academics or competitive sports. Say No to Children: In the eyes of Elkind, a crucial way to allow children to remain kids is by setting up major boundaries; the easiest way to do that is by saying the two letter word NO. The primary reason for the hurrying of children is the lack of parental involvement. By saying no to kids, it allows them to infer that they do not require any parental guidance and that they are in fact grown. For example, if an 8-year-old child begs and pleads for the latest and greatest smartphone, it is important to remind them that they are too young for such an expensive privilege. These boundaries will allow your child to enjoy their childhood without the responsibilities of an adult.
