Self esteem or self control


 

afternoon storm on the shore

Far to many children are filled to over flowing with the modern self-esteem, thinking they can do anything when ever they so choose; they need to learn restraint , they needed to learn to be patience, they need to learn that no and wait are not nasty evil words. Self restraint and patients go hand in hand both of them lead to the learning of respect………they need to have a sound and firm foundation a moral foundation built on God his command and his decrees.

However what they receive in our time is a litany of me myself and I.  Even the word self-esteem is rather disconcerting for it focuses them only on the one themselves , esteem points to self-pride yet pride of self blocks respect of other without the ability to empathize  ………….
