Do you know what's compelling her to compare herself? That seems so young!
I have a 6 y/o who already has self esteem issues. I encourage as much as possible to see her good points, and not compare herself to others.

I have a son and daughter and I talk to both of them about self esteem. It's just as important for boys.

That's so great.
We do talk about this some. She's 10 and already has acne, wears glasses, ... so far she hasn't cared about any of it.

My daughter is too young yet to discuss self esteem but I have thought about it a lot.
We'll talk as she gets older.
