Age Differences in Concepts of Self-Esteem.
Daniels, Denise H.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v44 n2 p234-58 Apr 1998
Examined age differences in self-esteem concepts. Found that with increasing age, children's concepts increasingly resembled those of some theorists. Subjects believed that liking oneself influences internal reactions to events. From nine years, children used self-esteem to explain others' thoughts and feelings, and expected self-esteem to resist change. Only older adolescents and adults referred to the role of personal standards. (Author)
