Kids and Too Much Pressure

"It's time to get homework done." "Let's go soccer practice is going to start." And soon I'll also be saying, "time to go to Cub Scouts". Kids today have a lot going on. Between homework, sports and other extracurricular activities all in the hope of helping them not be left behind and get into a good college one day. But is it too much?

I am discussing this over at the Jen and Barb Mom Life Blog today. Jen and Barb have teamed up with American Idol and Coca-cola to discuss this very question with Timothy Smith father, family coach and author, about the need for downtime and play, for kids and the whole family.

I just got done watching the video found here- and I love love the idea of figuring out which of the four types your kid is to understand how all of the activities they are in is affecting them. Go watch this video for sure!

So head on over- check out the video discussion here and pop on over and see what I had to say about the subject by clicking here. I will be turning off comments here so you can leave me all your love over there. Thank you!!
