Elkind shares that he had a conversation with a dean of admissions at MIT who told him that many of the students she sees have limited imagination and creativity because all their lives they have been over-organized and over-programmed.
Considering Elkind's views on our "hurried society," do you agree with his thoughts? Do you sense hurriedness in your day-to-day life? Do you feel a sense of urgency for your child to reach milestones?
Thinking about these concepts with those close to you will help you navigate hurriedness and make intentional choices about the pace of family life and achievement culture in your home.
