Changing Sources of Self-Esteem among Girls and Boys in Secondary Schools.
Brutsaert, Herman
Urban Education, v24 n4 p432-39 Jan 1990
Explores biological and sociocultural elements as functional determinants of self-esteem that are dependent upon gender and developmental stage. Findings indicate self-esteem of early adolescent girls depends upon parental support, but for boys it depends upon a sense of mastery. In later adolescence a sense of mastery becomes important to both genders. (JS)
