Counselor’s Corner

From Mrs. Barnes…

Love and Logic has an analogy of a Three-Legged Table when it comes to a child’s self-concept.   They say, “The building of a person’s self-concept can be compared to building a three-legged table.  Such a table will stand only when all three supports are strong.  If any one of the legs is weak, the table will wobble and rock.  If a leg is missing, goodbye table.  Our children’s three-legged table of self-concept is built through the implied messages we give.  These messages either build them up and allow them to succeed by themselves or add to childhood discouragement and reduced self-esteem.” (taken from Parenting with Love and Logic p. 38)
