good about themselves seem to have an easier time
handling conflicts, socializing with others, and
resisting negative pressure. Healthy self-esteem is like a child's armor against the challenges life throws at them. Children who don't believe in themselves typically deal with challenges with anxiety and frustration. As well as finding it hard to deal with or solve their problems. A child without their armor A person's character determines who they are: what they want to do, why they want to do it, and how often they tend to act on these actions. Why it's important This role the child plays tends to develop at an
early age and stays with them through
their entire life. A child's character is like the
role an actor would play
in a show or movie 12 Steps to build self esteem in a child emphasize the importance of early nurturing 1. PRACTICE ATTACHMENT PARENTING Heal your past 2.

Effects of bad character crucial impacts and choices this affects are: school
social skills
career decisions
potential jobs In fact people with low self-esteem at least have a 35% greater chance to be listed in the consequences above Children that don't know who they are in life usually make last moment decisions. When that is applied to college and careers the quick choices aren't always the best and they end up dropping out and taking any job they can to keep them alive. http://kidshealth.org/parent/emotions/feelings/self_esteem.html
