Self-esteem Summary

Self-esteem: The Key to Your Child's Future by Tony Humphreys

'A sensible and eminently readable book.' The Irish Times Parents act as a mirror for their children. Parental responses to children determine the image they form of themselves. When we discourage our children's big dreams, we do so because we don't want them to be hurt or disappointed. But the real hurt comes not from life - which has a way of guiding us towards true goals - but from telling our children that they can't make it. With the right growing environment, children flourish. When parents take time to listen as well as talk to them, children feel loved, encouraged and capable. Their self-esteem grows, they trust themselves, and they develop positive attitudes towards life. Dr Tony Humphreys helps parents create a family environment that promotes self-esteem. He makes it clear that without attention to children's inner conflicts and self-esteem, it is unlikely we can foster successfully within them a desire to learn. He sets out a clear plan to promote their love of learning, emphasising that the emotional welfare of children is the cornerstone of their educational and future development. * Originally published as 'Self-Esteem: The Key to Your Child's Education'.
