In Never Enough we take a look at how the achievement culture that is prevalent in society today is harming children as they are pushed to compete more, achieve more, all in a quest to get into the “best” education so they can be “set for life”. Wallace analyses how this focus on achievement harms kids, sometimes as much as poverty can harm kids, and then finishes with what we can do about it as the adults that schedule kid’s lives so full.

If there is one takeaway I’d impart to you, make sure the kids in your life know they matter to you. Give your children hugs and tell them that you value them. Give them something to do around the house so they know that the members of the house rely on them.

For those kids that are in your orbit, tell them how much you value them and be there when they have questions.
