Self-esteem is a key element of happiness and success and makes us feel good about ourselves. During our lifetimes, self-esteem can fluctuate, because it is not something we are born with, it is something we acquire. A child's self-esteem can be boosted when their parents are pleased with them. Having an achievement recognised is a sure-fire way to do this. A child that is never praised will become de-motivated, and constantly being told off can be damaging for a child's self-esteem.

Modern medicine means that most children who come here will get better and leave within a short time but some conditions are so complex that the children become dependent on technology to keep them alive. Parents and doctors must weigh up when to keep relying on technology, and when it is no longer right to continue treatment.

In this episode, Professor Robert Winston explores how we develop the art of speech and body language to make ourselves understood and to understand others. At three years old our children have discovered the joys of speech. We see how children pick up language and the importance of communication both verbal and nonverbal. They are learning as many as 10 new words a day - and some have already grasped the first 1500 words of the 20,000 words they can expect to learn in a lifetime.
