Dr. Nathaniel Branden, one of the pioneering figures in the field of self-esteem.
I ask myself this question, could the Founding Fathers of this amazing country have possibly envisioned a world in which teenagers could casually walk into a classroom, pull out a loaded pistol and cold bloodily murder their teachers and fellow classmates....

Conventional studies on the role of self-esteem act as an anxiety buffer to the mortality salience rely on the self-report questionnaire as the measurement tool (Burke et al., 2010).
Going to University is a major step for everyone. There are hopes and dreams
for the future. For a teenager who is taking this step, there are many stresses
to deal with. One stress is moving out so that they are closer to the
university, another is getting a job to pay for the tuition, or maintaining time
so that they could study and hold a job part-time. As a parent, we also have
the similar stresses, or maybe even more. We worry about how our children are
doing, wondering if they are capable of surviving the big responsibility of
living out on their own. We are happy when our son/daughter graduate form high
school, but we are also scared about them going to university. We are not sure
if they are ready to face the big world. This is the time when the son/daughter
has freedom, so they think they could do anything that they want, such as
staying up all night and partying, or not going to classes. As a parent, and
having my son in university myself, I have a few advises for those who are
becoming independent and are leaving for university. Having some fun is not a
bad thing, but you should remember that you are there to study and to fulfill
your dreams and your parents dreams. University is a big and different
environment, you will be meeting new people and making new friends. In
university, friends are your first place to look for help and support. During
your years in university, you will face many problems, but these problems
should not stop you from getting your education. Make in my days, education was
not easy, we did not have many career choices, but nowadays there are many
choices. As students and young adults you have the opportunity to make a
difference in this high-tech world. And you could choose which path of career
to take. Entering university is only the first step to get an advanced
education so that you can get a career of your c

When parents talk with a child, they should use phrases that build self-esteem such as "Thank you for helping,'' "That was an excellent idea!," "You are terrific!," "What a nice job!," "Masha' Allah." Praise, recognition, special privileges, or increased responsibility may be given for accomplishments and successes.
It is common for the research of TMT using explicit self-esteem indicates the concept of self-esteem and hence to explain their role on mortality salience (Pyszczynski, & Greenberg, 1992).Explicit self-esteem is measured in a conscious way....
Those individuals with low self-esteem appear to be in need of positive self-relevant feedback and feel threatened when negative feedback is presented (Brown, Collins & Schmitt, 1988)....

Over the course of the classic novel, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Jane exhibits her dignity and integrity through her interactions with other people and even in her everyday living. The author establishes Jane's character early in the novel through her confrontations with John and Mrs. Reed. The development of her character is central to the novel; meaning, practically the entire theme revolves around her personality and her coming of age. She is depicted as having a very opinionated personality toward others. Bronte does a remarkable job of revealing Jane's character through her actions, words, and appearance.
Many times throughout the book, her outspoken attitude is turned into aggressive acts. At the start of the novel her cousin, John Reed, hurls a book at her just to anger her and make her fight back, creating her to get in trouble. This is the case in many cases when John starts fights with her; she is always the one who gets punished. One afternoon, Jane is peacefully reading in the windowsill when John walks into the room. He begins criticizing her and throws a book at her, which makes her hit her head on the door, cutting it open. Not being able to stand it any longer, Jane erupts and goes flying at him with her fists clenched ready to kill. The two begin fighting and are rolling around on the floor when Mrs. Reed "comes to John's rescue ?. He, of course, lies and blames the entire thing on Jane, causing her to be scolded and sent to the red-room. Her integrity is shown when Miss Abbott and Bessie Lee are taking her to the red-room and she puts up a fight and refuses to go. Later on in the story, Jane comes across a man, Mr. Rochester, on a horse in the woods. He is thrown from the horse and she helps him up by letting him lean on her until he is able to mount his horse again. Jane exposes an underlying character trait of caring and sensitivity when she lays with her dying friend, Helen, at Lowood.
