Self Esteem Chickens Come Home to Roost

A very worthy post by those scalpel-wielding Clemson graduates at MUSC Tiger on just how infantile the cult of self-esteem has made today’s generation of youth. Quite a bunch of milque-toasts we’ve raised. Go read it. I see this all the time in parents rushing to protect their little dears from every boo-boo life has to offer.

    Heh. My girlfriend uses purple ink when she grades tests and papers. The kids aren’t the only ones with an overabundance of esteem, their parents need to learn that junior isn’t perfect.
    “Oh, my son would never curse out a teacher!” or “my sweet little daughter would never write a ‘kill list’.”
