Hi there,

you don't give much information here, so all I can suggest is that you consider your teen seeing a psychologist as there is a good chance that the rebellious behaviour and the low self-esteem are linked in that they are engaging in what would be called "acting-out" behaviours i.e. the behaviour alerts you to their emotional distress.

The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition.
