How achievement pressure is hurting our kids
As parents see the academic and working world become increasingly competitive, many expect excellence from their kids as they juggle academics, sports, activities, and jobs. We talk to the author of a new book about how achievement pressure is affecting today’s youth, and how parents can help their kids succeed without causing unnecessary stress.
