How To Help Children And Youth With Low Self–Esteem Or That Lacks Confidence

Low self-esteem can make living and learning very painful. It can create behavior challenges. Low self-esteem can prevent future success in adult life. It can lead to a very painful and costly life. Low self-esteem can be due to and complicated by a combination of: medical conditions; learning and developmental challenges; a lack of consistent, meaningful success; family communication patterns; over/under expectations; unrealistic expectations; family members competing for attention; lack of acknowledgement; exposure to environmental pollutants; nutritional imbalances; exhaustion; prolonged stress; emotional and/or physical discomfort from accidents, traumas and abuses of all kinds; insufficient educational programs.
