Hurried child syndrome is a collection of stress-related behaviours that occur when a child's parents expect him or her to perform well beyond his or her mental, social, or emotional capacity. In essence, parents overbook their children's schedules, drive them hard for academic achievement, and expect them to act and respond like miniature adults. Other factors include the present state of trade. Many who sell to children these days realise that their parents no longer tell them what to eat, wear, or watch. This reality is being exploited by the consumerist economy, which is having an effect on children. Statistics on the hurried child syndrome include the following: According to recent research on the impact of hurried child syndrome,
• There has been a 50% rise in childhood obesity over the last 20 years,
• A tripling in suicide and murder rates over the last 20 years, and
• About 15-20% of young children are "flunking" kindergarten.
• Millions of children are medicated in order to make them more 'controllable' at home and in school.
According to recent statistics, 70% of teenage girls will not be virgins by the time they reach adulthood, and 40% of those who are sexually active will become pregnant. Addiction to drugs and alcohol is now a leading cause of death among adolescents, but suicide is also on the rise. Every year, 5,000 adolescents commit suicide.
