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.

What happens to us in life from the moment we are conceived can make a difference. So how can the environment help to increase a child's intellectual potential?
