Survey Results of 3-5 Year olds.
Adolescents Self Esteem & Communication
In Conclusion:
Adolescents today communicate
through technology and often
base their self worth on how many
"likes" and "followers" they have.

Girls and boys are barraged
by media images of what is
considered the ideal body type and
appearance.

At this age, children can lose their sense of self and become confused looking to peers and how they communicate to gain an opinion on themselves.

Adolescents often go through identity crisis.


School aged children are much more
aware of their peers and are able to
communicate efficiently with those
around them.

Kids at this age are constantly rebuilding their
self image, and becoming (with support) more
confident in their abilities and who they are.

At this age, stronger friendships start to form.
Children have more set groups of friends, in
which they confide and in various activities
with.

Children engaged in various sports and activities with wider groups of friends often have the most confidence and highest self esteem.

There are many variables that can affect self-esteem.

Peer communication can be affected by the level of an individual’s self-esteem

Children and Young Adults (everyone else too!) should surround themselves with positive influences and we should do our part to help make sure nobody feels bad about themselves so that everyone feels comfortable communicating without the fear of feeling judged or dismissed.
