Reviews - What do customers think about Your Child's Self Esteem?
the basics of parenting Mar 25, 2008
You will not succeed with any " Pocket Parent" style book or with any single "parenting tip" if you fail to understand the very important things that this book explains in a clear, thorough way. Every parent should read it to go beyond their expectations and treat their children with humanity and respect. Very nice book.
The Very Best Book on Creating Self Esteem Mar 3, 2008
I read many books when my daughter was born in 1986. This was the very very best. I just recommended it to a friend and decided to report on what happend to my kids using Dorothy's approach.
My daughter graduates from college this May. I credit much of her confidence, poise, independence, self discipline, sound decison making, and self awareness to implementing the ideas presented in this book. Same with my 15 year old son.
I reckoned if i did a few things correctly when their little brains were soft and impressionable they would have the tools to weather whatever storms crossed their paths in the future. These storms did appear a few years ago, and my kids held up perfectly.
My kids are biracial. No big deal today, but a bigger one in 1986. So I decided they required double doses of self esteem. Fortunately they've encountered very little racism. A blip, if that.
Read the book and do the simple things she recommends. Toss the anti gay remarks, not the book.
Added May 25, 2008: My daughter just graduated summa cum laude from Tufts. Thanks Dorothy! She'll join Teach for America next month.
Just Starting May 8, 2007
I have to admit I haven't finished the book yet, but I LOVE it already! I almost see it as a self-help book too, because as I read it, I'm doing a lot of reflections on myself and my own upbringing. I actually recommended the book to two other friends who aren't even pregnant or expecting any time soon! What a great book to teach about self-esteem and how we can help instill it in our children.
Helpful even when your baby is little Nov 10, 2006
Reading this early was a great help to me. My son is still quite young, but I'm already getting good ideas and getting into good habits to help build up his self esteem. This information also makes me feel like a more confident parent.
From the author of, Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves Sep 9, 2006
As the author of Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves I recommend Your Child's Self-Esteem with all my heart. Until my book was out I told my clients, readers and workshop participants to read Briggs book. Although I treat tantrums differently, I find most of what Briggs said over 30 years ago still in line with my own guidance. She was way ahead of her time and for the most part the book will give you everything you need to know about your child's self-esteem and more.
