Throughout this journey of the entitled child, Lee examines what an entitled child looks, sounds and acts like at every stage from infant to adult. She explores the strategies that you, as a parent, can use to effectively build a new relationship with your entitled child.

The Indie Author Life

Self-esteem is a critical factor in raising children who are not entitled. Writing recently on her bloh, Peggy Harper Lee offered up five ways to teach your child to love herself:

Self-esteem is a movement that has taken a life of its own in the past few decades. And really, if self-esteem means that you need to think that you are perfectly wonderful, isn’t that a recipe for disaster? What happens the next time you make a mistake? Your self-esteem could take a hit. It seems that St. Valentine had something better than self-esteem. He had self-meaningfulness—a clear sense of his own value and significance, a purer form of self-love based on principles, clarity, integrity, and compassion for his own imperfections.

We know that we can’t give our children self-esteem, we’ve tried. Some of us parents struggle with esteem issues ourselves. Why? It’s because it’s based on a feeling. If we are feeling special or important or meaningful, and then someone points out a flaw, the feeling changes. You can’t call your daughter special and expect her to feel that way when the rest of the world gives her feedback based on her actions and behaviors. You can teach her that like St. Valentine, she has value and significance that include, and are not in spite of her imperfections and flaws.
