Designing appropriate nursing care for children must consider the potential impact of illness on a child's self-perception. Multiple theoretical frameworks have been used to represent the construct of self-perception in children. The purpose of this study was to examine what factors may influence a child's judgement of self-worth within the theoretical framework of self-perception proposed by Harter (1985). Two structural equation models were designed consistent with Harter's theoretical framework, but different in how a child's perceived importance of each domain contributing to self-perception was represented in the model. Using the responses from 517 children to the Self-Perception Profile for Children (Harter, 1985), the two alternative models were evaluated. The overall fit of the two models was similar indicating that neither model was a clearly better representation of the theoretical framework or of the role of perceived importance in predicting a child's global self-worth. In both models, only the direct effects of adequacy of physical appearance and adequacy of behavioral conduct on global self-worth were significant. The results of this study contribute to theory development and may assist nurses in selecting an appropriate framework on which to base nursing interventions that maintain or promote self-perception in children.
