Too Much Praise Can Turn Kids Into Narcissists, Study Suggests
Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Fail
Telling your kids they are extra-special does not result in "healthy" self-esteem... but in narcissistic craving for constant external validation. EQUAL TO OTHERS -- neither instrinically better or worse -- seems to be the sweet spot our society finds so difficult to achieve.
Makes me wonder why it's so difficult to get parents to teach equality.
