Reclaiming childhood in an over scheduled world

What’s The Hurry? explores the need to allow children to slow down and have time to play rather than be over scheduled. In today’s society, children are now more anxious, more exhausted, more over scheduled and they are becoming increasingly hooked into technology too early and too much.

What’s The Hurry? provides a range of practical strategies to support parents in their parenting and the choices they make, with the vision to set children up to be resilient and effective communicators. This is so they enjoy their childhoods and are equipped to lead happy, healthy and successful lives as they grow.

Now in its second edition, What’s The Hurry? provides a unique guide for educators, parents and the community about the importance of understanding and responding to children.


Topics covered:

  • Understanding children and behaviours
  • The importance of play
  • Over scheduling children
  • Social emotional development
  • Screen time
  • School readiness
  • Choosing a school
  • Effective school transition strategies
  • Bullying
  • Parenting tips and much more …


It is a must for:

  • Parents
  • Educators
  • Community groups.
