When someone has low self-esteem, they think negatively about their abilities and worth. The more they have these thoughts, the harder it is to feel good about themselves.
Signs someone has low self-esteem can include:
There’s no single cause for low self-esteem. Negative friends or overly critical adults may play a part. Feeling lonely, bullied or neglected can also be a factor.
You may feel sad if you notice your child seems to feel less positive. Try to take notice more often how your child feels about themselves. This will help you find ways to support them.
