What is self-esteem?
Self-esteem is how your child feels about herself. Having high self-esteem is very important. Read on to find out ways to help your child build self-esteem.

Help your child build self-esteem
Ask your child these questions to see what her self-esteem is like:

  • Does your child feel happy with herself?
  • Does your child feel proud about what she can do?
  • Does your child feel loved?
  • Does you child have friends?
  • Does your child feel good about her looks?
  • Does your child feel good about school?
  • Does your child feel comfortable with her hearing loss?

If your child answered "no" to any of these questions, she may need help with self-esteem.
