Author: Kids are pressured to be 'Carnegie Hall level' impressive today to be noticed

Doug Brunt first got people’s attention with his take on Wall Street traders in his novel "Ghosts of Manhattan." His latest work of fiction, "Trophy Son," chronicles the life of Anton, a tennis prodigy who struggles with a domineering dad. The son has to strive off court to find his identity.

The author joined Dana Loesch on today's "Dana" to explore an important message in his novel. He recalled that in the 1980s, colleges valued applicants who were well rounded.

He noted that now, children have to be exceptional, or "Carnegie Hall level" to impress anybody, which leads to the heart breaking specialization of "little eight-year-olds."

To see more from Dana, visit her channel on TheBlaze and watch full episodes of “Dana” live weekdays 6–7 p.m. ET or anytime on-demand at TheBlaze TV.
