Abstract:

Across the country, children are being pushed harder than ever to perform so that they will one day "make the grade" in the adult world. From overscheduled playtime and standardized tests to academic preschools and early emphasis on getting into the best colleges, the new pressures on children to achieve are enormous. But something critical is being lost. We are robbing our children of the most important cornerstone of their intellectual and emotional development -- time to be children. In "Reclaiming Childhood", child-development expert William Crain argues that the greatest gifts that we can bestow on our children include a strong sense of self, an enthusiasm for learning, the ability to think independently and creatively, and the confidence to explore the world. "Reclaiming Childhood" provides an important antidote to the excessive pressures on children today. -- From publisher's description.
