Booklist Review

Written by a psychologist already distinguished for her parenting seminars and audiocassettes, this book offers clear, specific tools for nurturing children's self-esteem. Citing high self-esteem as the single most important factor in children's emotional growth, Marston suggests eight guidelines for raising children that can be modified for the needs of both parent and child. Drawing from her own research, the author illustrates her principles through portraits of different family situations. Exercises for assessing individual situations are included in each chapter. The extensive bibliography provides suggestions for further reading. To be indexed. ~--Tracie Richardson
