{on success and teens}

“They feel and act so competitive with their peers that true friendships suffer, they feel shame if they do not measure up, and they panic about the consequences of not being among the elite. Because they are so goal-oriented, overscheduled, and tired, creative life is nonexistent.”

“. . .this cultural phenomenon of kids whose entire lives are spent preparing for college admission. . .This is not a moral issue, but a mental health issue. Rigid ideas of success can be very pain and limiting.”

~Carrie Barron, MD and Alton Barron, MD, “The Creativity Cure”
