|Exploding the Self-Esteem Myth|
|Boosting people's sense of self-worth has become a national preoccupation. Yet surprisingly, researchshows that such efforts are of little value in fostering academic progress or preventing undesirable behavior|
|By Roy F. Baumeister, Jennifer D. Campbell, Joachim I. Krueger and Kathleen D. Vohs|
Yeah, yippee, yahoooooooooo!!!!! It is about flipping time someone said this out loud!
Self-esteem is not something you are born with! Self-esteem is something you earn just like every other perc.
And the thought of protecting an individual's self-esteem is tantamount to keeping them from it! Let people fail and succeed and fail and be hurt and be fulfilled and be _themselves_!!!
Yeah, yippeeeeee, yahooooooo...
