Transcript of Low Self Esteem

Low Self Esteem
7 in 10 girls believe that they are not good enough or don't measure up in some way. Including their looks, performance in school and relationships with friends and family members.
38% of boys use protein supplements and 6% have experimented with steroids. 40% of boys in middle school and high school exercise daily to build muscle mass.
About 20% of teens will experience depression before adulthood.
Causes of low self esteem
self image
criticism from parents or authority figures
