Positive affirmations are very important in building a child’s self-esteem. It can be difficult to remember to give our kids affirming words, particularly when life is busy or we naturally focus on what needs improvement. It takes being intentional and aware of their impact. Here is a list of 20 positive affirmations to tell your kids. Don’t worry that your kids will catch on that you’re saying the same things over and over again. Repetition will help the words sink in and become part of how they see themselves. So pick a few and say them later today or tomorrow. Observe how your child responds and keep speaking affirmations. They work!
