childhood versus ambition

a debate I often encounter, probably based around the postcode I live in.  shouldn’t a child be encouraged to work hard whilst ensuring that enjoyment and the sense of achievement are present?  I find overambitious parents a worrying breed.  surely they can see the damage they are doing as they insist that 3 instruments, tap dancing, tennis coaching, swimming squad and japanese method maths are an acceptable routine for a six-year-old?  Even if the child goes on to attend Havard, surely they will be incapable of old-fashioned relaxing and reading for enjoyment?  Long live Lego and the imaginary world of Playmobil.  we all need to unwind a little.
