What is good self-esteem? How do you get it? Through the use of vignettes, viewers learn that self-esteem is determined by how much we value ourselves and our abilities. For example Mike, who concludes that although he lacks athletic prowess, he still has many other talents to be proud of. Lauren discovers that even if her science project didn’t win first prize, she can still be satisfied that she tried her best. Eva’s story points out the value of self-acceptance rather than trying to blend in with the crowd. Finally, Tim’s tale illustrates why individuals need to rely upon the people who accept them, rather than listen to those who criticize or tease.
