Product Description


Offering practical and achievable methods to help children gain self-respect, this guide enables parents to discover the basics of self-esteem, the relationship between discipline and self-respect, and the reasons for the junior high self-esteem crash. A robust, yet realistic self-esteem is taught through five critical strategies in which gimmicks and good intentions are replaced by the hard work of both parents and children. Following this step-by-step program, parents can help their children to feel better about themselves and to make changes toward building a strong sense of self.

I was impressed enough with this book to order his others 7 July 2000
By Al B. - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book makes some very accurate and useful observations, chief among them:
Self-esteem comes from tangible experiences, not just touchy-feely, feel-good platitudes mouthed by adults -- children see through those.
Each child has a "Great Evaluator" (internal critic) that is always monitoring the child's performance and pushing for improvement. This is necessary for the child to develop, but sometimes this internal critic can be misled and a child can become too self-critical.
Life is not always supposed to be too comfortable for kids -- some discomfort is necessary for growth. Likewise, a parent's job is not always to make a kid feel good.
The author then goes on to elaborate on each of these and his other observations, giving specific advice to parents on how help the child accurately see themselves and build real, not phony, self-esteem.

Self-esteem Revolutions in Children:understanding & Managing 2 July 2000
By Sheryl L. Wolf - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book is divided into three main parts and goes into detail on why self-esteem is important. I felt this was information I already knew. However, the most helpful part of the book was the last section where it discussed how to manage your childs self-esteem.

practical understanding of child development 1 Aug. 2007
By Sandy - Published on
Format: Paperback
Very helpful in terms of understanding child development, children's needs and particularly vulnerable times for them. I liked Phelan's practical approach, very down to earth - there is no way you can make a child have good self esteem. He blows many myths out of the water and hopefully makes it much less threatening to be parents, it is not "all your fault".
