Self-esteem starts to build in childhood
The child builds self-image through his childhood and youth. There are many factors that influence on his self-image.
When a child is born he starts to know the world and learn about things that surround him. Parents have a significantly important role in his first years of life.
The way parents are teaching and showing him things is the biggest factor in developing his self-confidence and self-esteem that will show later in his adulthood.
Parents can give positive examples to a child through play, so he can feel safe and progress. He should have options to develop his creativity.
If you have kids, don’t tell them what to do. It is more important that you show them because they are always watching and taking patterns from you. The way a child is raised can influence his whole life.

Now that I am an adult, I can analyze the whole process of growing up and also what role did my parents play regarding developing my self-esteem.
