Religion Influences Self Esteem

And who is the most important influence when it comes to how teens feel about themselves? Not mom or dad, not even their friends….it’s their boyfriend or girlfriend (if they have one). Interestingly, religion comes second:

– Your girlfriend/boyfriend (84%)

– Your religion (82%)

– Your friends (79%)

– Your parents (74%)

– Your teacher(s) (72%)

– TV shows you watch (51%)

– Celebrities (e.g. actors, athletes, musicians) (49%)

– Magazines you read (38%)

– Advertising you see (on TV or elsewhere) (33%)

– Other kids in school (31%)
