50 Positive Affirmations For Your Child

Hey pretty mummas!! Affirmations play a very important role in building a child’s personality, confidence and self-esteem. They are also a great way of enforcing good habits, good manners, positive outlook and also teaching them to manage their emotions and feelings.

Affirmations play a very important role in building a child's personality, confidence and self-esteem. A selection of 50 #affirmations for your child.

As a parent, it can be challenging sometimes to truly understand what’s going on in their heart and mind. It is difficult at times to know their fears, anxieties and troubles.

I am facing a very tricky situation these days. If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram, you already know that I am a mother of two kids – Miss D (6) and RD (2). RD is at a stage where he wants everything that his big sister, Miss D, has. He imitates everything that his big sister does. Ultimately, Miss D feels troubled by him a lot of times. Many times when I am not around, I have to tell Miss D to be careful around him.

I feel that on some days she feels bogged down by the whole idea of being the “big sister”. Somedays she starts blaming herself for anything that goes wrong while playing or doing any activity together. That’s completely wrong and requires tactful handling of the situation. However, when she is actually at fault, we don’t start blaming her outrightly. She is also a child afterall!

In situations like these, I calm her down and reinforce and remind her of her good qualities. I use “Positive Affirmations” as an approach to handle these situations. I keep telling her how good a sister she is and how much she loves her little brother.

This is just one situation. There are many such everyday scenarios that truly test my patience and wit. Even if you are a parent of a single child, these kinds of tricky situations keep testing you day in and out.

When I say these positive statements, I see a relief and a smile on her face. With this approach, she is becoming a more loving, caring and careful around her little brother. She is also becoming an optimist, a person with a positive perspective and approach. In other words, Miss D sees the half glass full.

I have listed the affirmations that I say to both of my kids. These are like positive programming codes or mantras that encourages children mastering their thoughts. These will also help them manyfold on their way into adulthood. You can choose to say them to your child or ask your child to repeat after you.
