Religion and Teen Self-esteem

High school seniors who attend religious services are significantly more likely to have a positive self-attitude than those who don’t, regardless of how infrequently they attend, and independent of their race, age, sex, level of parental education, and other factors. These results, part of the 2002 Monitoring the Future survey available for free download on the website of the National Study of Youth & Religion show that 38 percent of high school seniors who attend church weekly or more agree with the statement, "I take a positive attitude toward myself," vs. 26 percent of 12th graders who never atted religious services.
