How do you foster good self-esteem from a young age?

I'm not sure if we have fostering good self-esteem down in our home or not. I got the idea for this question from this article:…

But I am not sure what to think of the article. I do agree our children need to learn to fail and get back up again. The thing is as a parent it is hard to let go and let them fail, so maybe that's the issue in part.

I love the ending sentence of the article: "A balanced child is one who learns his success and worth is not just defined by how good he is, but also how he lives goodness."
