We hurry them because we want the best for them
•Achievement Overload
Largely the middle class parents who have achievement overload
Bring them up in terms of social status
Children who are generous should be seen as well but since we are
so focused on materialism we begin to push and hurry them
incorrectly
All children reading on par by the fourth grade
Children who do have to work hard because they are the grinders
do better in university don‟t have to be gifted to be successful
•School Hurrying Children
have the stellar tests in school (Grade 3,6,9); look at children
across the province and rank schools and performance within them
(i.e. better teachers) but point is to see if we are educating kids
appropriately
factory management kind of mentality
undermining education when we tell kids to stay home from school
when the test comes
we are more concerned with grades instead of what we are actually
learning
not so interested in the job as to the amount of money that it is
being paid counter productive
Lots of cheating and dishonesty with regards to this
Manipulation of the system all the way along
Erosion of the moral development
Instituion and the people within it become overloaded with paper
work and it takes away from the amount of time educators can
spend with their students
Three things we must look at:
o Student is the center of the interest
o teacher
o length of time they are together
children have different levels of intelligences but we need to know
how to get to the child and treat in them that desire to learn
maximize the students learning potential if they know what their
Strengths and Weaknesses are

teachers vary in intelligence
o bright teacher but don‟t know how to teach
o average teacher who struggled but has become a magnificent
teacher because they know what it is to struggle
o intelligence and charisma is a verbal and affection for children
o some are engaging and approachable and some frightening
o affection that some teachers have; half heartedly we have
already short changed the child
schoolphobics - If children are hurried along the way and are
considered the least important part of the process you can
understand why children don‟t want to go to school (no energy to
cope with this confusion)
•Free Floating Anxiety
we can see where stress has come in free floating anxiety
totally normal child but something has gone awry see in the
classroom now is restless and irritable and unable to concentrate
don‟t have the words with which to articulate the feelings and
describe to you what is going on in their life
put into awkward roles that they cant articulate you see the errors
that adults are making that has put them in these at risk situations
o Children in a surrogate self child becomes symbol of parents
frustrated competition in the workplace, parent will pressure
them to perform (vicarious living)
o child as status symbol If child is in special class or
something then they feel the need to brag etc.
working parents can add a stress particularly in the dual career
family
o children are hurried because they are being worked into a
parents schedule
children who are treated as therapists single parent families
o trying to support children financially and emotionally and
them having a stressful time in the workplace and than
explains to the children their stress at the workplace and for
suggestions (not appropriate)
the child is consciousness and called upon to play the role of moral
arbitrator

right sounds together. Turkey scared away hawk trying to eat chicks by
gobbling. Turkey is convinced it is the way it should be and should be happy
