Developing your child's self-esteem and confidence

Dr. Sears reports that self-esteem is your child’s passport to a lifetime of mental health and social happiness. A children's story that explores the meaning of true value and potential is a very powerful tool for the development of any child. When you share this story, your child will be inspired to think of his or her own potential and self-worth, just like the main character.

Raymond's Uncut Diamond takes your child on a journey with a young boy named Raymond, who is given a stone by his Grandpa and sent to the market. While trying to find the right price for his Grandpa's stone, Raymond learns of its true value, as well as his own.

  • Will Raymond succeed in selling his Grandpa's shiny stone?
  • Will Raymond get the advice he wants from his Grandpa?
  • What will he learn about true value in his own life?

The lesson of the book is best expressed in this inspirational quote by Joyce Meyer: “Potential is a priceless treasure, like gold. All of us have gold hidden within, but we have to dig to get it out.”

Raymond's Uncut Diamond is a well-written, inspiring story that will help you to teach your child the meaning of the true value within. This book was created to help with your child's:

Self-esteem: Positive self-esteem helps children in their interactions with others and their ability to face life's many challenges. It reminds them that they are worthy of love and accomplishment, and this will stay with them into adulthood. As most children learn their self-worth from their parents, it is very important that parents share stories like Raymond's in order to promote positive self-esteem from a young age.

“Can-do attitude”: Children who repeat “I can't” often seek attention and acceptance through harmful behaviors. However, this book encourages your child to put in effort to become better in everything he or she does. The book reinforces the view that not being good at something is a temporary state and encourages children to accept the responsibility to strive and work to become better.

Raymond's Uncut Diamond is an entertaining read before bedtime, with the whole family, or as self-reading for older children. Additionally, it is a great resource for teachers and counselors to share with individual students or in a class.

With vibrant, delightful illustrations and easy-to-digest lessons, children will become sharp and shining like their true value!!!
