Parenting Book Giveaway: The Self-Esteem Trap (10/2) CLOSED

Friday, September 18, 2009 Posted by Dina N

I am always on the lookout for good parenting books. I came across a new promising read by Polly Young-Eisendrath The Self-Esteem Trap: Raising Confident and Compassionate Kids in an Age of Self-Importance. This book was published by Hachette Book Group on September 2, and I am reading it right now! Stay tuned for my upcoming review. In the meantime, check out the book information below.

Book Description
Kids today are depressed and anxious. They also feel entitled to every advantage and unwilling to make the leap into adulthood. As Polly Young-Eisendrath makes clear in this brilliant account of where a generation has gone astray, parents trying to make their children feel special are unwittingly interfering with their kids' ability to accept themselves and cope with life. Clarifying an enormous cultural change, The Self-Esteem Trap shows why so many young people have trouble with empathy and compassion, struggle with moral values, and are stymied in the face of adversity.

    I recently read Every Where She Turns by Debra Webb, The author's use of the "Red Herring" tecnique was masterful. She kept me guessing the identity of the murderer fom a list of six suspects.

    Although the reader will discover the identity of the killer before the end iof the story, the author still managed to suorise the reader at the end.

    Hmmm... I have read so many books in the last few weeks that I have enjoyed immensely, how can I pick just one?! Well... I recently re-read 'War and Peace' by Leo Tolstoy as an adult and it was great. Please accept this as my entry. Thank you!
