Abstract: Self-esteem is a person’s understanding of how valuable he or she is in the world. Many family scientists consider self-esteem to be the single most important factor in shaping a person’s life. Self-esteem is a family affair. It is in the family that we first decide who we are and how to be that way. Therefore, parents—and other primary caregivers—are powerful examples in the development of high self-esteem in children.
