Dr. Dobson does an excellent job of getting across the basics of child psychology and how they relate to self-esteem, without either talking over the readers' heads or talking down to them. He describes some of the ways that parents can intentionally weaken their children's self-esteem and many ways to prevent or remedy that situation, ultimately giving the child a self-image that is based on inherent worth rather than abilities, attractiveness, possessions or performance. This book is highly recommended to anyone who is disappointed in the prevailing current views on how to build a child's self-esteem, and wants to try a better way--God's way.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0800756800, Paperback)

From the moment they are born, children experience an unfortunate value system that reserves respect and esteem for a select few. Those who fail to measure up end up resigning themselves to a lifetime of feeling inadequate and inferior. Over the past twenty-five years, more than a million parents and teachers have benefited from Dr. James Dobson's insightful counsel in his classic Hide and Seek. Now revised and updated, and in paperback, this book provides a new generation of parents with practical pointers for raising self-confident, healthy children.
