I received this book through GoodReads First Reads in exchange for an honest review

To be honest, this wasn't the best parenting book I've read. I *loved* the concept, focusing on the child's self-esteem, looking at areas like love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, optimism, gentleness, and self-control. And I really did enjoy that at the end of every chapter they had a bunch of quotes from diverse sources relating to the subject of the chapter. I appreciated that they would quote Mother Teresa and Lao Tzu on the same page, for example, not discriminating people of differing faiths and worldviews. I enjoyed that they ended each chapter with suggested reading for each age group (younger children, older children parents) and movies which exhibit the character trait of the chapter. Even the exercises were interesting. But the chapters weren't, in my opinion, really entailed enough. They each hinged around of a story, which I guess just isn't my style. The "secrets" that came after the story were a better expansion of the character trait given in the story, but I wish they had written from a more direct, matter of fact kind of style. I'm not sure I'm explaining that well enough, but basically I just had a hard time connecting with the book, even though I agreed with the focus and content, because of the style in which it was given. There were things I was able to take away, and for that I have to be grateful. I just wasn't in love with this book, as I have been with others. ( )

Book description
While primarily directed to parents, Building Your Child’s Self-Esteem, is a valuable resource for adults with a desire to positively influence the lives of children.

Self-esteem is transferable! Children with healthy self-esteem tend to come from environments where parents, guardians and teachers also demonstrate healthy self-esteem. Children with low self-esteem are often the product of environments where parents, guardians and other adults demonstrate disorder, disrespect, poor discipline, irresponsibility, lack of self-growth and poor communication skills. In the right environment, children can learn to self-correct-eradicate negative behaviors by means of their own independent responsible behavior and mind-set.

Building Your Child’s Self-Esteem Reveals Strategies on how self-esteem manifests in children, how children with healthy and low self-esteem communicate, and how healthy and low self-esteem characteristics affect parenting skills.
