Like we discussed in class on Monday, self esteem appears to have some sort of relationship on motor development. This article that I found starts by saying that children have unrealistically positive views of themselves during the preschool years however, this changes when they get deeper into the schooling system; feedback from their environment, and their self-evaluations become largely based on social comparisons with those around them. They then become increasingly critical of how their performance compares to others, and they are able to acknowledge missed opportunities and failed experiences. Furthermore, it is concluded that individuals with poorer motor skills had a relationship with lower self-esteem. Consequently, they are judgmental of their skills and decide not to participate as they get older and develop bad motor habits.
