The first step in supporting our children with having a healthy, high self-esteem beings with the adults in their lives. How we speak to ourselves and how we speak to them has lasting effects on our children. That’s why Positive affirmations can be extremely helpful for children as well as their care givers.
Why Kids Need Positive Affirmations By
Kids need positive affirmations. As parents and teachers, we know the importance of children getting the nutrition, hydration, sleep, and exercise that they need. While those things are crucial for their physical survival, positive affirmations are just as important for their emotional and mental well being.
Think of how awesome you feel when someone gives you a compliment. Your children also feel that in their soul. When they’re young, they derive so much of their own identity from their parents. They are watching and listening to you even when you don’t realize it. They need you to be their biggest cheerleader.
A child with confidence feels as though they can take on the world. When the adults in their life are speaking powerful words into them, they feel more capable and will be more willing to take on new challenges. Positive affirmations are more than just a trendy idea. They contribute to growth mindset and help form who your child believes they can be.
You are your child’s inner dialogue. This means they are going to believe what you have to say about them. If you say they are big, strong, and amazing, then they are going to believe just that.
