Putting Substance into Self-Esteem: A Focus on Academic and Moral Values.
Damon, William
Educational Horizons, v70 n1 p12-18 Fall 1991
Too strong an emphasis on the development of self-esteem in young children can lead to the tyranny of self-centeredness with the ultimate result being badly adjusted adults. Without an objective moral referent, children cannot acquire a stable sense of right and wrong. (JOW)
