Own it

Jim Taylor on instilling self-esteem in children:

“Parents were told to love and praise and reinforce and reward and encourage their children no matter what they did. Unfortunately, this approach created children who were selfish, spoiled, and entitled. . . without [a] sense of ownership, children are thoroughly unprepared for the adulthood because in the real world our actions do have consequences.”

    I know a lot of adults that need to learn how to “own it.” It’s the exception now, not the rule.

    It’s beyond my comprehension that anyone fully subscribed to this theory could practice it for more than a few months without an about face or going insane.
