Hurried child syndrome is a set of stress-related behaviours that develop when a child's parents expect him or her to perform well beyond his or her mental, social, or emotional capabilities. In essence, parents overbook their children's schedules, push them to excel academically, and expect them to act and react like little adults. The current situation of trade is also a consideration. Many people that sell to children nowadays understand that their parents no longer dictate what they eat, dress, or watch. The consumerist economy is taking advantage of this reality, and it is affecting children. The following are some statistics about the hurried child syndrome: According to recent study on the impact of rushed kid syndrome, childhood obesity has increased by 50% in the last 20 years, suicide and murder rates have tripled in the last 20 years, and roughly 15-20% of young children are "flunking" kindergarten.

According to recent data, by the time they reach adulthood, 70% of young girls will not be virgins, and 40% of those who are sexually active will become pregnant.
