Self-esteem is how a person feels about themselves. Most children will have dips in self-esteem as they go through different stages or challenges in life, and there are different pressures that may affect them – including social media, bullying, exams, family problems and abuse.

Things like starting a new school, moving house or going through changes in the family can also affect a child’s confidence – but with support from parents and other adults they can usually get through this.
