Self-Esteem Grows in Teenagers With
Self-esteem is the value teens place on their self-worth. Adolescents need to develop a healthy sense of self-love. They often ask themselves how they measure up compared to others. The crux of the matter is what they value such as their grades, the number of friends they have, their appearance, their kindness to others, their talents and interests.
Parental Intelligence means understanding what goes on in your own mind before you can understand what goes on in the mind of your teen. After you understand your own values, you can help your teen develop a set of values to make his or her own self-assessment.
