We have been discussing self-esteem in teenagers. To be truthful, the research (and its application) we are referring to is universal to children and adults. We have already discussed connectiveness as a component of healthy self-esteem. Another important aspect of self-esteem is uniqueness.
In my last post we discussed the varied components of building self-esteem in your teenager. The first component was to insure that they were connected. We also talked about what connectiveness looked like for a teenager.
Many emotions, physical and hormonal changes, relational crises and personal issues accompany adolescence. Often, these changes take a toll on the self-esteem of a teenager.
