Building Up Our Children’s Self-Esteem
By: Anthony Leroy Sutton: Psychologist/Teacher
About the Book
While working with children in the Swedish school system and visiting the students in the Finnish school system, author Anthony Leroy Sutton was able to make a comparison with them to the lower socio-economical groups in the United States of America, who have not brought psychological slavery to closure. He hopes the reader will understand and appreciate that our future relies and depends on the educational level of our children’s understanding of who they can become and who they will be competing with in the future.
Building Up Our Children’s Self-Esteem will help improve the circumstances in which our children’s ability to learn is enhanced by improving how they see themselves.
