  • Get them out of the house, get them out of their comfort zone if possible. Trying new things is a great way to improve self esteem



  • Thanks for the answers – we have been working on little steps and getting there slowly but surely.



  • I would get them out and about just doing different things, I know that worked fir me



  • This is so hard to do – the person with low self esteem rarely admits to it. Unless you are very close family, I don’t see how you can help because you wouldn’t realise it. The one time a close worker admitted low self esteem to me was when he was inebriated. He refused to believe he had said what he said and when I and my partner tried to help, he refused that help. Two days later he hanged himself. All I can say is – tread very warily in this situation.
