The return of your favorite “big sister” as the champion of self-esteem!
- Book Intro
<Self-esteem Training for Mothers> consists of five chapters. “Chapter One: Understanding the Birth of a Child” deals with where self-esteem comes from. The author says that all children are born with the seed of self-esteem, already aware that “I’m a pretty great person.” Being mother is about helping the child affirm it. In “Chapter Two: Mothering an Adolescent,” she shares her own experience of supporting her child when he quit high school, and stresses that childrearing has to be done from the child’s standpoint, not the mother’s. “Chapter Three: Mom’s Approach To Life Nurtures the Child” suggests ideas on how to frame a child’s worries and experiences in a positive way. And “Chapter Four: Motherhood is an Opportunity” the author provides training methods for mothers to strengthen their self-esteem. The final “Chapter Five: The Smart Life of a Confident Mother” is for mothers who are torn between their dreams and family, or between work and children, and Kim suggests ways to use parenting time wisely so that it does interfere with a woman’s self-growth. Based on her passionate life as a mother of three and a career woman, Mikyung Kim shares her hard-earned wisdom on raising and educating her children. Filled with words of comfort and encouragement, empathy and answers, <Self-esteem Training for Mothers> is the perfect gift for first-time mothers who are lost and searching for answers.

As all mothers would agree, being a mother was not an easy job for her, but she has always believed that she was raising her children with decent philosophy and integrity. Then a few years ago, her second child declared that he was going to drop out of high school. This made her rethink her approach to motherhood and really ask herself if she had been a good mother.
