    Interseting, you say oh brother, but these can be very helpful tools for children, and if you ask me, self-esteem is fairly problematic for a lot of kids.

    If kids grow up in a bad environment, they often aren’t taught to express their feelings and may not even have the words to do so. How nice for you that you grew up in a way that gave you these tools, but understand, not everyone did.

    Try helping a child through sexual abuse therapy and then tell me that feelings and self-esteem don’t matter.

  2. Ima Fish says:

    N, the reason why people scoff at self esteem programs for kids, is because esteem is something that should be earned, not given. You should feel good about yourself because of your accomplishments, not merely because you exist. Existence is easy and is worthy of nothing. Unfortunately groups such as the one posted lean much more towards the latter versus the former.

    When people who were supposed to be running the company started asking, “If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be,” I knew it was time to get the hell out of there.

    N,
    …helping a child through sexual abuse therapy has very little to do with the “touchy feely” esteem stuff promoted in schools. Kids are pliable little beings. If you tell them “you are fine just the way you are”…then where is the need for them to learn to read, memorize their multiplication tables, study history, or even practice good grooming, or manners. Kids should never be the center of the universe, but part of it. By over pushing “esteem” as an end, we limit the children’s abilities.
    Look at American Idol (as an silly example) you have late teens and 20-somethings throwing things at the judges, angry, because THE JUDGES judged them. Kids sports has changed so drastically since this “esteem movement” that the kids all think of themselves as STARS and not part of a TEAM. I’ve never seen more pouting and protests of “it isn’f fair” than from esteem-laden kids.
    I don’t think it’s NORMAL for kids to have oodles of “self esteem”, real or imagined. In some cultures, many that are kicking our asses in the world’s education arena, it’s considered BAD parenting to praise a child. Hmmm…maybe they have a point?
    How can you/why should you — reach for the stars..if you’re told that you’re already among them?

    Is the Spanish version limited to the 26 letters of the English language?
