Praise For The Hurried Child-25th Anniversary Edition

Wall Street Journal, 9/4
“[The first book to] mourn the loss of play and leisure time [for kids].”

Washington Post, 11/5/09
“Read The Hurried Child by psychologist David Elkind. It explains the development of children so well and gives such good reasons for slowing them down that you'll want to give a copy to every parent you know.”

Washington Post, 3/12/10
“To learn more about children and how they grow, read The Hurried Child…It’s one of the great classics of parenthood.” The Jewish Week, 6/23/10
“If you want to know more about the harmful effects of micro-managing our children’s lives, read The Hurried Child…[Elkind’s] main theme remains relevant more than 25 years after its initial publishing.”
