Decscribe how communication can be used to promote self esteem

P3-Decscribe how communication can be used to promote self esteem Children of all ages require self esteem to feel good about themselves. However self esteem is also crucial to a child's happiness. Only when they are comfortable with themselves and believe that their abilities have worth will children truly feel fulfilled. Unfortunately, self esteem can often be in short supply throughout childhood and the teenage years. At some time, nearly every child or teen will suffer from low self esteem.
