How to Use Positive Affirmations

Knowing that positive affirmations are great for your child is one thing, but actually implementing them on a daily basis is completely different. It's a challenge to remember to say those kind words and give them the high five they need between packing lunches, getting dressed, and asking to brush their teeth the 100th time. However, there are some simple ways to build this habit for you and them.


Take a moment to think about your child's unique strengths and special qualities. Are they a great artist, a fantastic friend, or a problem-solving whiz? Choose one of these powers and say it out loud to them. For example: "You are a creative genius!" Repeat this affirmation whenever you see them accomplish something grand.

Celebrate Achievements:

Think about something your child recently accomplished, big or small. Did they finish a challenging puzzle, learn a new dance move, or make someone smile? Share their achievement with a positive affirmation. Say something like: "You are a puzzle-solving superhero!" Remember, every achievement, no matter how small, deserves to be celebrated!

Facing Challenges:

Our kids face challenges that make them feel a little unsure. But with positive affirmations, we can conquer them with a smile! Let's say they're nervous about putting their face underwater swimming. Have them take a deep breath and say: "I can swim like a mermaid!" Believe in their abilities to do hard things, and they'll find the courage to tackle any challenge that comes their way.

Spreading Kindness:

Not only can positive affirmations boost their confidence, but they can also make others feel amazing too! Be an example for other parents and share uplifting words with your friends, family, and even strangers. Tell someone, "You are so kind!" Your words might be just what they need to brighten their day and feel more confident too. Remember, sometimes we all need a little pick me up, not just our kids.

Congratulations, superhero parents!
