Under Pressure: rescuing our children from the culture of hyper-parenting, by journalist, author, and parent, Carl Honore, is a frank look at concepts about ideal childhood, and ideal parenting, past and present. The author looks at what it means to come at children with preexisting  concepts and assumptions about how they should excel, as opposed to taking our cues from our children. He looks at the costs of the ever looming pressure and vagueness of the ideal ‘giving my child all the best.’ The author examines common myths about childhood in history. Finally,  the book offers expert interviews, research, and personal ideas,  about how to encourage children to thrive.
