Facilitating children's self-esteem: The role of parents and teachers
Self-esteem, the evaluative aspect of the self-concept, has been linked to important outcomes in children, such as enhanced well-being (Rosenberg, 1965; Wilson, 1991), lower symptomatology (i.e., depression and anxiety; Harter, 1999), and more positive peer relations (Coopersmith, 1967). Thus, it is not surprising that a great deal of research has focused on the socialization of children’s self-esteem. In this paper, we focus on the contributions of parents and teachers to children’s self-esteem.
