Most parents want to protect their children from shame, but psychotherapist Joseph Burgo says that’s not always the right approach.

In his book Shame, Free Yourself, Find Joy and Build True Self-Esteem Joseph says shame is a complex emotion that is often misunderstood.

In this interview, he explains how shame manifests and how it can help our children build real self-esteem.
