These daily affirmations for kids help boost your kids attitude and thoughts!
Sometimes, my kids can get into a funk where they are negative about everything. My 9 year old is especially bad about negative self talk.
It can stem from a bad mood, not sleeping well, getting a bad grade, or getting in trouble at home. No matter the reason, it’s never fun to hear my kid tell me he’s not smart, he can’t do it, or he will never learn.
Using Affirmations for Kids to Change your Child’s Thinking
Enter positive affirmations for kids. These short phrases are very powerful in changing the way your children thinks about the day – and about themselves. Repeating these short phrases every day can help promote positive thinking, which we all need more of in our lives.
With my son’s help, I created a list of daily affirmations that he can repeat every time he’s feeling down about something. He even says a handful each morning to help set himself up for a great day at school or at home.
How Do Affirmations Even Work for Kids?
Have your kids reciting these positive affirmations each day for them to actually work. The shift in self talk helps the brain to create new neural pathways so your child starts to automatically think more positively.
I know that sounds like a lot of foreign science talk, but it’s basically the law of attraction. The idea that what you focus on most is what you get out of life. If you focus on the positive, you will find that your life is more positive overall.
This doesn’t happen overnight. It’s important that your child recites the affirmations on a daily basis for that positive shift in thinking to occur.
I’ve also made a printable of the list of affirmations for kids. Hang this in your child’s bedroom or bathroom so they can see it every day. Just a couple minutes of reciting affirmations from this sheet can totally transform the way your kiddo thinks.
We also have some affirmations for anxiety that may help you too!
