"Friendships in childhood are usually a matter of chance, whereas in adolescence they are most often a matter of choice." -- David Elkind
Professor David Elkind (born March 11, 1931) is an American child psychologist and author. His groundbreaking books — The Hurried Child, The Power of Play and Miseducation — informed early childhood education professionals of the possible dangers of "pushing down" the elementary curriculum into the very early years of a child's life. By doing so, he argued, teachers and parents alike could lapse into developmentally inappropriate instructional and learning practices that may distort the smooth development of learning. He is associated with the belief of decline of social markers.
