I can begin to build my baby's self-esteem before she's 2 years oldTrue One in five parents thinks that self-esteem does not begin to develop until age 3 or later. But most experts believe that children actually start to gain self-confidence in the first two years of life, and many say you can start building it from birth.
What this means for you Boost your baby's confidence every chance you get. By paying attention to her, maintaining realistic expectations, and loving her unconditionally, you'll be setting the stage for your child's bright future.
