Abstract

The importance of self-esteem in anyone's life, especially in a child's life, can hardly be overemphasized. Weinhold and Hilferty (1983) found that self-esteem, which had been verified in previous studies, is the mainspring that launches every child for success or failure as a human being. Because this sense of self-worth or lack thereof is manifested so early in life, and can have an effect on academic success, it is essential that school counselors learn how to nurture a child's sense of worth.
