I start with this definition because narcissism is at an all time high within our youth, and people wonder why? Where does it start? It starts in preschool where songs like Frere Jacques have been changed to better suit the self esteems of toddlers.
"You are special, you are special
because you're you, because you're you
you're so very special, you're so very special
yes you are, yes you are"
"I am special, I am special
because I'm me, because I'm me
I'm so very special, I'm so very special
yes I am, yes I am."
If everyone is special then no one is special. Yes my kids are special...TO ME! Beyond that, we will just have to wait and see. This song demonstrates just one of the many lies we allow our children to be told.
