Doc Zone Hyper Parents and Coddled Kids

Kids today are the most overprotected, overindulged and overscheduled in history. Is all of this attention giving the next generation a competitive edge, or creating new problems that will last a lifetime? From the first baby yoga class to the last university course, and even sometimes into their children’s workplaces, today’s parents go to any lengths to ensure their kids stay ahead of the pack. It’s an approach that sometimes seems more like product development than childrearing. As the first batch of hyper-parented kids emerges into adulthood, experts say this parenting style is having unintended consequences — like young adults with higher levels of anxiety than any generation before them. Hyper Parents and Coddled Kids presents a snapshot of a great social experiment in parenting.
