Building Self-Esteem and Self-Worth
What can you do to help your child(ren). Build their self-esteem and sense of self-worth. This does not mean praising when he does good in school or out on the soccer field. This means that when he behaves appropriately, you praise him for this. When he makes a good positive statement or responds appropriately in a situation, you praise him. This helps to build his confidence in his own thought and behavior patterns. And he builds trust in his own abilities to think. And this in turn helps him to critically think.
The Festering Wound
The Festering Wound and letting it heal.
You get a rash on your arm. At first it starts as just a red rash that itches, so you scratch it. But it just itches more and more. So you scratch it more and more. You scratch it so much that it starts to get raw. Soon you are scratching it so much that it starts to bleed. Pretty soon, it is not just bleeding but infected and oozing. In fact, it is a festering open wound and the only way for it to heal is to cover it with a bandage and ointment. You just have to leave it alone for a while, so that eventually, you can reach out and touch again.
Thinking outside the box
In Joan's world there is no box. She believes that you have to think so far outside of the box that the box is inside out, upside down and not even shaped like a box. If you stay in the box, you get trapped and literally boxed in.
