Depression, Bullying, and Addictions are just a few side affects from having a low self-esteem. Alternatively, thinking too highly of oneself and less of others is dangerous as well.
When a child doesn't see value in his or her peers they are more likely to become counterproductive citizens in society and less likely to develop healthy relationships.
Our book You Are Special is designed for children to see value in themselves and others. This book helps children to not compare themselves to others but instead see how each one of us has something unique to offer.
Research has proven that the better children feel about themselves, the less likely they’ll be subject to:
• Peer pressure
• and developing self-destructive mindsets into adulthood.
