From the back:
Most of us think of stress as an adult phenomenon. But today's pressures to cope, to succeed, and to win are every bit as taxing - indeed, as dangerous - for children as they are for adults. Unlike the children of the previous generation, who were raised under the dictum of less discipline, the children of the 80's are the hurried children: forced to achieve more and earlier than any other generation; outfitted in designer jeans and a whole array of adult costumes; faced with divorce and single-parent families. Their traditional rites of passage come too early; their fears of failure are constant.
