Self Esteem | Simple Ways to Increase Your Child’s Confidence


Although this book is written to the parents of adolescents, I think it is useful for parents of younger children as well. Some examples of the topics are: Setting boundaries, Stop bullying, Feeling rejected, From sloppy to neat, Toning down drama queens, Being responsible, topics on which entire books have been written. This book devotes a couple of pages to each topic, so of course, it is not comprehensive. Yet many, not all but many, of the suggestions given are helpful, and the information is written in a format that is simple and easy to understand and remember.
