Contrary to popular belief, recent research rejects the notion that most or even many children and youth are over-scheduled and are suffering as a result. In fact, less than one in ten could be described as overscheduled. Moreover, our research indicates that only six in ten children and youth participate in organized out-of-school activities at any given time, and links involvement in those extracurricular activities with positive social, behavioral, and psychological outcomes.
