Value of building self-esteem?

“Young people in the 20s are “quitters” with inflated egos…parents have created such a lost and useless generation. Parents have given them too much help, robbed them of independence and told them too often they were special when, in fact, they weren’t.”

Jean Twenge (San Diego State University Study)

My comment: this may be true but as a parent of this generation, I was constantly advised by ‘experts’ to protect the delicate self image and build confidence by the very interventions that are now criticised.
