My mom tried to convince me that the only reason for anything good in my life is God and everything bad is my fault. From her perspective, If it weren't for her invisible parental figure, my life would be a meaningless chain of negative effects on reality.
I still suffer the psychological, anti social effects of overcoming that upbringing.
I suspect Glens suspicion is merited. . . . lol

I suspect that self-esteem may often go the other direction (south) with children in highly religious homes and/or schools, where they end up feeling a lot of guilt & shame when they don't meet expectations of parents and religious teachers, or think they may be in danger of going to hell, etc.  In terms of academic performance, I doubt anyone has shown that religious students do better than non-believing students.
