More on self-esteem ( Finish on 5/8/09)
Haven’t thought about the topic for weeks, there was no school, and there was other works. There was no time for me to try to done more with my inquiry question, or rather I am losing my interest in it. I wonder if we could change our inquiry question, maybe I should have of pick a more talkative topic such as, “Who am I in my former life (reincarnation)”, or “is there a superior life that controls us?”. There would be a lot to research, since the topic is much unknown, and people gathers evidence to prove or to disprove.
“We have a mixed school here and it is probably easier to deal with the lads’ issues. I don’t want to over-generalise, but girls tend to be a bit more complicated with their little jealousies and things like that. The boys tend to get over them more quickly.”
Maybe this is why some girls rather be around guys than girls, but then it would be strange and the girls would get harm either way. Jealousies is a feeling that I don't feel much of, I admit there are sometime when I get the feeling, but It goes away easily and it did cause me to create any problems. I wouldn't hate someone because of somethings they have, I would only admire them. People could sometime easily mix the feeling of jealousy and admiring up, "I wish I have that! is different from " Why does she have that and I don't?!"
I'm learning more about self-esteem right now, and in particular what I'm wondering about is: how does self-esteem affect a person's action? a news item, "Friends for Life" , March, 31, 2009. http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/health/2009/0331/1224243716874.html, caught my attention because there are not much news article out there that talks about both friendship and self-esteem at the same time. I found out more relationship between self-esteem and friendship.
The quote I chose here is basically saying friendship could affect a person's self-esteem.
This is something fresh new I learn, and I guess not a lot of people know about it since it just came out in the news.
Children's self-esteem problems have been addressed in some peculiar ways of late. As Vision points out, "In the summer of 2005 Liz Beattie, a retired British school teacher, proposed to her union that the word failure should be banned from classrooms and replaced with the more palatable phrase deferred success so as not to discourage students from continuing efforts to achieve." At about the same time in the United States, various bans on red ink gained momentum as teachers assumed that the color was causing undue stress in children.
People are making kids’ lives way too easy for, don’t they know they are actually harming them by doing that? How are these kids going to survive when they step their feet into the real world? They might survive in this country if this is going on in the whole country, but how will they be able to compete with other country? Our country will fall behind. There are kids who struggles to live in the poorer countries, and with no question will they fit well in the real world if they survive, there no way kids form our country could compete with them, with the comfortable condition they live in.
I’m learning more about self-esteem right now, and in particular what I’m wondering about is: What type of self-esteem does the kids in U.S. have? As I was reading in my Google Reader, this article caught my attention because there are article out there that mention kids with high self-esteem, while other articles talk about the problem of kids with low self-esteem, so I’m very confuse about the self-esteem of most kids in U.S.
Sometime over protection will lead to even deeper harm when the person is expose to the real world.Parents should build up a strong support for their kids to develop strong self-esteem, not just over protecting them, that won't help them, but ruin their life.
