Why is it so important to check your child’s esteem?

A study by the Centre for Longitudinal Studies has concluded that instances of low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression amongst children are at their highest levels in a decade.

With half of all cases of adult mental illness starting by the age of 14, prevention and early support for children are vital. 

The good news is that our tools can help you to identify and bridge any cracks in self-esteem and self-confidence, along with several other vital qualities.

How the self-esteem check helps teachers and parents

For teachers

In just a few minutes you will gain critical insight into a pupil’s emotional well-being.

For parents

The questions you answer about your child will get you thinking about them in a way you may not have done before.

Why does self-esteem matter so much?

Believing in yourself sounds like a simple enough task, but most of us know it’s not so easy putting it into practice, especially for children. Unkind words, comparing themselves unfavourably to others, not feeling liked or supported, doubting their abilities – these can all shatter a child’s sense of self-worth, and it can take years – decades even – to recover.
