Sharing is caring!

Positive affirmations, we all need it. I use them personally, and I use it with my family on a daily basis. Positive affirmations for kids can be a great way to remove negative self-talk and instill happy thoughts in young children.

By using the right sentences we can enhance their well-being, boost their self-confidence and encourage positive thoughts.

Positive affirmations can also improve mental health & inspire a growth mindset attitude. 

However, when we think of affirmation we tend to think of ourselves speaking in front of a mirror and repeating things to ourselves. That can be dull and no child wants to stand in front of a mirror watching you speak to them.

Instead, positive affirmations should be used in daily conversations with your children.

Importance of positive affirmations for kids:

Positive thinking can be a powerful tool that will help improve mental health and provide children with the ability to negate negative thoughts.

It is a great way to relieve stress and instill positive thoughts in young as well as older children.

Using positive phrases as part of your child’s daily routine can be a source of inner strength for your child.

The positive beliefs that you instill in your child can help them make good choices and form part of their belief systems until they are adults.

Using positive words your child will have better control of their emotions and will begin to think more positively about any given situation.

It will encourage positive-self talk and remove those nagging voices in their mind.

Creative ways to encourage kids to do positive affirmations:

1. Positive Affirmations starts from home

Take some time during the day to look into your child and let them know that they are loved. For instance, before bedtime, you can say “I love you and you are amazing”. 

You should also recognize your child’s unique strength and whenever possible point that out to your child. For instance, if they are good at drawing you can tell them “You draw like Picasso, am sure you can be a great artist if you keep practicing.” 

Such statements can increase their self-confidence and develop a positive inner-voice.

4. Learn from the best

Every child will need positive role models growing up.

Role models can start with people closer to home, for example, parents, teachers, and other family members.

Role models can also extend to other people. For example, inspiring celebrities, authors, artists, etc.

Reading stories about famous people and their determination to succeed despite their struggles can inspire your child to believe in themselves when they are going through a hard time.

It will give them great ideas on how to come up with creative solutions to any problem they are facing.

Don’t forget to check out the famous failure stories.

growth mindset involves helping children recognize that failure is part of the journey. Failure is something NOT to be ashamed of.

In fact, all the greatest minds have gone through some form of failure before achieving success.

You can print out the Famous Failure Kit ( part of the printables) and help your kids understand that it is about resilience and the ability to learn from mistakes.
