What parent doesn’t want their child to achieve? But someehow life today, for young children has become a dress rehearsal for type - A adulthood - a great big competition to be the best. If you’ve felt pressured to enroll your kids nonstop in special lessons, extracurricular academics, and organized sports lest they risk falling behind, you need to know: there is an easier way.
