The Self-Esteem Trap Review and Giveaway...

I really enjoyed reading this this book and think it's great to help our kids with self esteem! It is so important to have good tips and this book has some great ideas!

Kids today are depressed and anxious. They also feel entitled to every advantage and unwilling to make the leap into adulthood. As Polly Young-Eisendrath makes clear in this brilliant account of where a generation has gone astray, parents trying to make their children feel special are unwittingly interfering with their kids' ability to accept themselves and cope with life. Clarifying an enormous cultural change, THE SELFESTEEM TRAP shows why so many young people have trouble with empathy and compassion, struggle with moral values, and are stymied in the face of adversity.

Thanks to Hachette Book company

I think I need to read this book. I have noticed (increasingly as of late) that my son has low self-esteem. We have been working hard to get him to quite worrying soo much also. I am very curious as to what advice is in this book. I may help us out.
