The development of the child is considered only from the point of view that development depends on what goes on in a school. That is why perhaps most parents seek and want their children to be sent for better schooling, particularly to schools with the best available infrastructure and teachers. Thus the present study was conducted to explore the relationship between self esteem and family environment. . A sample of 175 students was selected through random sampling and taken up for the study that the relationship between self esteem of school children and their family environment is positive and significant. Again there exists significant difference between the self esteem of students belonging to high and low family interaction group. The impact of socio economic status on the self esteem is found to be insignificant. It can be concluded that family interactions or environment influenced the self esteem of secondary school students.
