The relationship between children's self-esteem and family environment was examined. In addition, self-esteem scores were compared to family type (intact vs. non-intact) . Male and female students were obtained from a non-random sample in the Midwest. There were 51 participants, 36 were girls and 14 were boys. The subjects were given the Coopersmith Self -Esteem Inventory and the Children's Version of the Family Environment Scale. Their parents were given a demographic survey to complete . The self-esteem scores were the dependent variable . There was a significant relationship between self-esteem scores and conflict, control, and expressiveness scores. However, there was not a significant relationship between self-esteem scores and cohesion scores. Furthermore, there was not a significant mean difference between self-esteem scores and family type.
