Self-Esteem:

What is it and how does it affect us?

Developing A Healthy Self-Esteem

Self-esteem is the beliefs we have about our self. As parents, helping our children develop a healthy self-esteem is one of the most important things we do. Self-esteem ultimately effects all aspects of their life: how they problem solve, how they interact with friends, how they handle difficult situations, how loved they feel, and their approach to new situations in life.

Helping children understand what they see on television, movies, or other forms of advertisement is not always reality is important. Having open discussions with your children can promote healthy self identity, and increase their ability to differentiate the factual versus the embellished material they encounter in the media.
