Review by Allison Martin

The book Keys to Developing Your Child's Self-Esteem discusses the theory of self-esteem in children and and its application. General guidelines are presented for parents interested in this topic. Author Carl Pickhardt explains how self esteem develops, as well as the factors that influence a child's self image, such as competency and parental encouragement. He takes a formal look at self esteem in children in a variety of circumstances - for example, during childhood and adolescence and in children with ADHD, depression or involved in substance abuse.

Examples of appropriate and harmful parental behavior that can influence self esteem are an key focus of this book. For instance, parents are urged to encourage creativity rather than blind conformity, and to use criticism cautiously while encouraging self reliance. Many issues related to a child's self esteem, such as parental self-esteem, grades, peers and money, are addressed. Keys to Developing Your Child's Self-Esteem is a useful book for those who are looking for an introduction to the topic of self esteem in children.
