The Dove Self-Esteem Project has worked with experts from the fields of psychology, body image, self-esteem, eating disorders and media representation to create a resource offering parents advice on how to identify self-esteem issues you think may be affecting your child and then help them deal with them.
Each section includes an action plan, giving you tools to help start conversations with your child about things that may be troubling them or unhelpful messages that they might be receiving.
Research suggests that following the advice in the booklet will have a significant positive impact on your child’s self-esteem, as well as your own.
These pages are brought to you by Parent Zone and the Dove Self-Esteem Project
The advice published on Parent Info is provided by independent experts in their field and not necessarily the views of Parent Zone or CEOP.
