Mother, May I?: Improving Self-Esteem Through God's Word
AuthorHouse, 2004 M01 8 - 164 páginas
Many problems in today's world can be traced back to the individual's childhood. Heartbreak caused by a child whose life has taken a wrong turn; or bad choices made that result in loneliness, despair, and crime may be a direct result of lack of early nurturing, or failure to set proper limits and boundaries. Children and young adults struggle with relationships because they did not learn in the beginning how to form and foster good relationships. Some turn in desperation to alcohol, drugs and promiscuity -- which only expands and intensifies their problems. Negative factors in lives can be caused by low self-esteem, and it is in infancy and early childhood that the course is set. Important attachments are made and the child develops a sense of worth. That internal feeling of having value (or not) sets the pattern, determining individual life choices. Heart-cries can be answered through God's word and by following the simple steps of a childhood game. Mother, May I? encourages the reader to take baby steps, giant steps, somersaults, and leap-frog hops until he or she is ready to cartwheel from the shadows of life with a smile and the realization of finally being "IT."
