By themselves, each of these incidents might mean nothing, but together they paint a disturbing picture. I believe they are indications of the fact that children's lives have become miniature versions of our own adult lives. We seem to be acculturating our children to be constantly busy, to be burdened by schedules, to become so stressed that they seek inappropriate ways to release that stress. Long before they start school, children develop schedules of their own, moving from one coordinated activity or program to another We no longer have to wait till adulthood in order to feel over-committed and overwhelmed.
