The purpose of this study was designed to identify the factor contributing to self-esteem of children. Based on the survey results, it was found that the major factors influencing Self-esteem include school record(${\beta}=-.15$, p<.001), communication with mother(${\beta}=.31$, p<.001), child-rearing attitude(${\beta}=.16$, p=.002). These factors explained 32.6% of the self-esteem of children. Therefore these factors should be considered in the educational programs for development of children's self-esteem.
