This paper asks the question: What domains of self-concept exist within young children and how does one go about assessing this phenomenon? It explains new approaches in encouraging a child to have self-confidence and to appreciate himself/herself and looks at how new studies have developed about this topic.

From the Paper:

"Exploring the self-concept of young children is a newly entered area of research. It was not until the 1980's that research on this particular age of a child began to highlight self-concept. This new trend focused mainly on one-dimensional features of self (DesRosiers, Vrsalovic, Knauf, Vargas, & Busch-Rossnagel, 1999). Since then, much evidence of a multidimensional view has surfaced, illustrating the need for more in-depth research."
