Six Myths about Self-Esteem.
Owens, Karen
Journal of Invitational Theory and Practice, v4 n2 p115-27 1997
Dispels six myths about "feel-good" self-esteem. Presents a more dynamic component of self-esteem called "inner self-esteem," which is based on children's actual competencies. Claims that inner self-esteem is enhanced by helping children develop skills to succeed in school and by fostering morally responsible behavior. (RJM)
