New York psychologist Albert Ellis, who pioneered Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), advocated for teaching rational cognitive and behavioral methods in the classroom (Ellis, 1971, 1973). Indeed, Ellis’ REBT system builds from educational methods that apply to teaching people how to identify and dispute negative thinking, and to engage in problem solving actions. (Ellis, 1962, 1994, 2001, 2004).

Tend to your own self-esteem. You need to see yourself in a positive light. Parents who lack self-esteem will have difficulties bringing up a child with a high self-esteem. A good positive parent is a parent who knows that he or she is not perfect but values him or herself, while always trying to grow and improve.
Social loafing is no rare phenomenon. When sales personnel work in groups with shared goals, they tend to “take it easy” if another salesperson is nearby who can do their work ( George, 1992 ). People who are trying to generate new, creative ideas in group brainstorming sessions usually put in less effort and are thus less productive than people who are generating new ideas individually ( Paulus & Brown, 2007 ). Students assigned group projects often complain of inequity in the quality and quantity of each member’s contributions: Some people just don’t work as much as they should to help the group reach its learning goals ( Neu, 2012 ). People carrying out all sorts of physical and mental tasks expend less effort when working in groups, and the larger the group, the more they loaf ( Karau & Williams, 1993 ).
