I think that every day you have an opportunity to help your daughter with self-esteem. If you think about it, even in the smallest interaction. Always notice and praise what she's done. If she is a very good soccer player, that sort of implies leadership skills. You should always define the behavior, not something physical because that is not what you are trying to build in her. That is not the character building flaw. If she stuck up for her brother on the playground, that shows loyalty. These are things that can be commended. If she hears that kind of talk from you, she will open up and give you more.
