Malia & Teacup Awesome African Adventure “A spoonful of adventure makes the psychology go down,” according to Dr. Molly Barrow, author and psychotherapist. Just as Mary Poppins helped children take their medicine with a little sugar, Barrow uses exciting adventure books to embed subtle positive messages about building self-esteem. “Self-esteem is the single most important factor for the safety of a child. Parents and educators should concentrate their efforts on inspiring children to value their self-worth rather than over-disciplining them into compliance. High self-esteem is psychological armor for children.”
