I won't exaggerate when I say this is probably highlight of living well series.

Self esteem is such an important topic, which is affecting your health, success and overall future.

As always, author has done the legwork for us and we can benefit from well researched subject written by professional doctor.

It shows, but I think this time it shows in a very good way.

Should I recommend the book? There is no doubt! You owe it to yourself and your kids to read and utilise the knowledge presented here.

This book is very poorly written and edited. It reads as though English is not the first language of the author and there are several spelling and typo mistakes.

HASH(0x97a3766c) out of 5 stars Every parent should read this! 30 Mar. 2013
By Tania Marchand - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What I really like about this book is the fact the author really has empowered me as a parent to help influence the self-esteem development of my children. I see clearly how simple things that I say and do, even with my busy schedule can have a very positive impact on my children.

I also didn't realize that depression, anxiety, and other emotional issues that our children have can have a negative influence on the development of good self-esteem. I love the tips for parents section, and plan to get my children to start doing positive Affirmations right away. Thanks Dr. Travis for this easy to read and very useful book. I highly recommend this.

HASH(0x97dd157c) out of 5 stars Overcoming Self-Esteem in Teens and Pre-Teens: 12 April 2013
By Rodney Mancini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Having been a special education teacher and school nurse, this book would be a great tool in college training programs for new teachers. As I was reading, it brought back memories of some former students that had low self-esteem and I could say yes to some of the causes this book talked about. The segments about the influence of parents, the school and the social enviroment were well represented. I particularly liked the part cautioning the making comparisons to other siblings and peers. This book also reconfirmed many of the things I did in my 25 years of teaching/school nursing to support students' personal and educational success.
HASH(0x97dd1480) out of 5 stars A practical guide for the confused 9 May 2013
By ShyGal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Dealing with all the issues that teenagers have can be confusing, frustrating, and most of all leave us feeling helpless. This is especially true when it comes to finding ways to help our teens develop a strong sense of self-esteem. What has worked for us may not work for our children, which makes it difficult to "pass our lessons" on to our children. Each child is different, and each needs a different kind of support for developing a sense of self-esteem. This guidebook helped me understand what goes into the makeup of self-esteem, and different strategies for helping each child develop self-esteem suitable to their likes, dislikes, temperament, and character. It's pretty eye-opening, especially for those who have never really had a problem with self-esteem, yet find that their children struggle with the issue. I would recommend this book to the confused parent. I was, and I found this book to be useful and clear.
HASH(0x97a37aa4) out of 5 stars A must read for teens and their parents. 10 May 2013
By James Liston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In this book, Dr. Travis helps to identify the causes of a low self-esteem and the roles that parents, schools, and the church play in shaping the lives of our children. He talks about the vulnerability of a child's view of themselves and ways to help them achieve a healthy self-esteem.
He discusses the health problems of pathologically low levels of self-esteem and how it can lead to depression. He also talks about the problem of having an unrealistically high self-esteem and how it can lead to eventual disappointment.
I think this book can be a valuable resource. Reading it, and discussing it with your children after they've read it, can lead to some insightful conversations.
I highly recommend it.
HASH(0x981ff9d8) out of 5 stars For Every Parent 7 April 2013
By Siggie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A very well written handbook on developing self esteem. It made me reflect on my relationship with my parents, my self esteem and thoughts about how I raise my children today. The world of a child has changed dramatically since my childhood. Having a better understanding of my children today gives the tools I need to prepare them for their adulthood. Self Esteem is the most critical attribute everyone has. The consequences of having too much self esteem are beautifully described. Every parent can benefit from reading this book even if the child has "the right amount" self esteem.

Highly recommended.
