The paper looks at how Andrew Lam's article presents a thought-provoking argument about the negative consequences of "too much" self-esteem in the life of contemporary American children, especially in terms of how this excess self-esteem might impair their academic achievement and social abilities both during school years and later in life. The paper shows how unfortunately, the central argument presented by the article is not logically sound and is open to serious questioning.

From the Paper:

"MC (Main Contention): Too much self-esteem can be bad for children. The main contention of the passage by Lam is that the excessive promotion of individualistic self-esteem in contemporary "Western" (esp. American) society can have a negative influence on young peoples' academic and social learning abilities and performance."
