COMPONENTS OF SELF-ESTEEM OF CHILDREN FROM A DEPRIVED CROSS-CULTURAL BACKGROUND
Abstract:This exploratory study with 100 Filipino children from a deprived cross-cultural background indicates that the majority consider that their family, friends, and school are important parts of their lives. These are aspects of the self tapped by typical Western self-esteem instruments. However, they also tended to rate as important as food, money, and clothes – things ignored by most Western instruments. As these were the areas of life which they were most likely to feel bad about, such instruments may tend to over-estimate their self-esteem.
