Our children are in the midst of a crisis of confidence!

From the moment they enter the world, children are subjected to a value system that reserves respect and esteem for only a select few. Those who fail to measure up to society’s standards--primarily in the areas of beauty and intelligence--must learn to cope with feelings of inadequacy and inferiority.

Over the past twenty-five years, more than a million parents and teachers have benefited from Dr. James Dobson’s insightful counsel in the classic Hide or Seek. Now revised and updated, The New Hide or Seek provides a new generation of parents with practical pointers for raising self-confident, healthy children.

Dr. Dobson also offers specific instruction on how to:

  • build confidence from infancy onward
  • protect children from the pain of inferiority
  • compensate for ridicule and unfair value judgments
  • teach children to respect themselves and others
  • shape the will without breaking the spirit
  • avoid overprotection and dependency
  • maximize educational potential

    Each strategy is followed by an informative question-and-answer section discussing common problems that occur in the lives of children. The New Hide or Seek culminates in a discussion of the values parents should seek to impart to their kids. These values will give children the courage to seek their best rather than hide in fear.

    Paperback, 230 pages.
