忙碌儿童综合征——儿童暑假也忙碌,“忙碌儿童综合征”英语怎么说?

    暑假到了,早高峰的公交地铁上,人们经常看到父母带着孩子背着大书包啃着汉堡去赶补习班的身影。假期的孩子过得好像比学期还要忙碌。

我们来看一段相关的英文报道

    Hurried child syndrome refers to a condition in which parents overschedule their children's lives, push them hard for academic success, and expect them to behave and react as miniature adults. 
    The concept of the hurried child was first proposed by child psychologist David Elkind in his now-classic 1981 book The Hurried Child: Growing Up Too Fast. 
    One symptom of the hurried child syndrome is forcing pre-school children to constantly take classes and perform other "enrichment" exercises to help them prepare for school. This is also called hothousing and the superbaby syndrome. 

    “忙碌儿童综合征”指的是家长将孩子的生活安排得过满、极力要求孩子在学业上取得佳绩,并且希望孩子表现得像小大人一样的现象。
    “忙碌儿童”这个概念是由心理学家大卫•艾尔金德在其1981年出版的经典著作《忙碌儿童:成长得太快》首次提出的。
    “忙碌儿童综合征”的症状之一就是强迫学龄前儿童不断参加各种辅导班和特长培训,以帮助他们为入学做好准备。这种现象也被称为“温室培育”和“超级宝贝综合征”。
【讲解】
    文中的hurried child syndrome就是“超级宝贝综合征”的意思。第一段中,overschedule 意为“过度安排”,例:Don't overschedule your vacation. 不要过度计划你的假期。

    第二段中,be proposed by 意为“被提出”,例:The theory of map model is an important theory to be proposed by studies in theoretical cartography. 地图模型论是理论地图学研究中提出的一个重要理论。
