How to foster your child’s self-esteem

Self-esteem is how people feel about themselves, both inside and out. People with good self-esteem generally have a positive outlook, accept themselves and feel confident.

Having good self-esteem doesn’t mean a person is arrogant or self-centered. It means appreciating your own self-worth and importance, taking responsibility for your actions, and showing respect and care for others.

Most of the time, children with positive self-esteem:

  • are happy,
  • make friends easily,
  • enjoy social activities,
  • are enthusiastic about new activities,
  • can play on their own and with other children,
  • like to be creative and have their own ideas, and
  • talk comfortably with others without much encouragement.
