This week's feature on young girls and self-esteem is written by Linda Millar of Concerned Children's Advertisers. She
writes, "In today's world, young girls and boys both feel the positives and the pressures of growing up. Research tells us
that both genders experience issues with self-esteem, but that they do so in different ways. "
Last summer we featured another CCA article, this one on boy's self-esteem. You can read "BOY - It's not easy being
one..." at http://126.96.36.199/ebulletin/FullFeature.cfm?ID=219.
