Self-Esteem Test

Assess your child's self-esteem...

Self-esteem - It's probably the most vital ingredient in raising a happy, confident child.

Healthy self-esteem is the foundation for achieving success in life and avoiding problems such as depression and drug use. That's why it's so important to take a close look at your child's personality and your own parenting style to figure out how your child is feeling about himself and his place in the world. Answer the following questions to see how well your child is doing in the self-esteem department.

After checking the best answer for each question below, you can click the "Score It" button at the bottom which will tally your answers and immediately offer suggestions and recommendations based on your specific responses.

NOTE: Your answers to this questionaire are anonymous, private and not individually identifiable. We do NOT store, email or maintain your responses in any form.

When your child approaches a new activity, such as learning to play a new sport or their first art lesson, they:
Think it will be a snap and boast that they'll be able to do it, then get frustrated or make excuses when they don't master the activity the first time out.

Are excited to learn something new but are a little surprised at how much effort it's going to take to get good at it.

Know it will take a long time to get it right but are determined to learn and enjoy each sign of progress along the way.
 
When your child makes a mistake, like missing a test question or messing up a play in a basketball game, they:
Get frustrated immediately, often blaming others or saying something disparaging about themselves, such as "I'm stupid" or "I'm uncoordinated."

Try again but are clearly discouraged.

Ask for help, then use that information to do better next time.
You and your child are playing Password, and they clearly don't know a specific answer. They:
Try to bluff, insisting that their answer is the right one

Guess but are discouraged that they don't know the answer

Plainly state that they don't know the answer, and then listens intently for the right answer, perhaps even asking for more details
 
Your child has trouble in math. When learning a new concepts, they:
Say they can't do it and give up before trying.

Try hard at first, but if it doesn't come easily they want to give up.

Try hard and asks for help, little by little overcoming the challenge.
Your child may be a very competent at certain activities or certain school subjects. How do they handle activities they're not good at, but would like to do?
They avoid them -- they don't want to be ridiculed.

They are rather focused on things they're good at. They'll try them anyway but stop if they realize they have an audience and perhaps feel embarrassed.

They do them anyway -- anytime, anywhere -- just for fun, and laughs off their lack of skill.
 
When it comes to taking care of their appearance and personal hygiene:
They usually always have to be nagged about their hair, clothes or peronal hygiene.

They keep up appearances, but need to be nagged sometimes.

They're interested in looking and feeling good and rarely needs reminding.
When a new child enters the classroom, your child would:
Ignore them, waiting to see how the newcomer is accepted by the rest of the class

Introduce themselfs and chat occasionally but doesn't go out of their way to make the new child more comfortable.

Happily invite the new child over and makes them feel welcome.
 
When your child and their friend disagree on something the way they would handle it would be to:
Insist on playing what he wants to play, ending the visit if the other child won't cooperate.

Give in quickly to the other child's wishes.

Try to compromise, coming up with ideas of what to do that both of them can agree on.
Your child has to give their first speech in front of the class and this is how they are handling it:
Almost making themselfs sick with worry, so much so that they are having trouble practicing. They ask repeatedly what people will think if they really mess up.

Not practicing as much as they could be but doesn't seem too worried either.

Has a good case of the jitters but is practicing and asking questions about what the recital will be like.
 
If your child does well on a test or in a soccer game, their reaction afterward is to:
Acknowledge their good performance and egg you on for even more praise and approval.

Dismiss his success and point out the flaws in his otherwise stellar performance.

Agree they did a good job and point out how all the studying or practicing paid off.
