Growing Up Too Fast

Dr. Rimm's survey and focus groups with almost 6,000 middle school students verify what many parents and educators are intuitively sensing: The impact of media and technology are indeed stealing middle childhood.

Behavior and pressures more typical of teens than tweens interfere with healthy development and are a serious distraction from learning in schools.

This presentation will reveal the findings of Dr. Rimm's research and she will recommend how parents and teachers can work together to stem the rising tide of precocious adolescent behaviors.

Tpics will include peer pressure for popularity, gender comparisons in development, attitudes toward sex, alcohol and drugs, bullying, violence and terrorism, body image issues, achievement and underachievement.

Related materials include the books, Growing Up Too Fast, and Why Bright Kids Get Poor Grades and What You Can Do About It, the guidebook, Underachievement Syndrome: Causes and Cures, and the tape, Pressures Children Feel and Why They Underachieve
