Positive Affirmations for Children

Positive affirmations have been used to promote mental wellness and self-confidence in individuals of all ages. However, they can be especially beneficial for children as their brains are still developing and more susceptible to the power of positive thinking. Teaching children positive affirmations at a young age can help instil a strong sense of self-worth and resilience that will benefit them throughout their lives.

Here are some suggestions for incorporating positive affirmations into your child's daily routine:

Start the Day with Affirmations

Encourage your child to start their day with a positive affirmation. This could be something as simple as "I am strong and capable" or "I have a kind heart". Starting the day on a positive note can set the tone for a more confident and optimistic outlook.

Use Affirmations during Challenging Times

When faced with difficult situations or challenges, remind your child of their strengths and capabilities through affirmations. For example, "I am smart and I can figure this out" or "I am brave and I can handle this".

Make it a Fun Activity

Incorporate affirmations into your child's daily routine in a fun and creative way. This could be through writing them on colourful sticky notes and placing them around the house or creating a "positive affirmation jar" where your child can pick out an affirmation to say each day.

Lead by Example

Children often mimic their parents' behaviours and attitudes. So, make sure to practice positive self-talk and use affirmations yourself. This will not only benefit you but also show your child the power of positive thinking.

Encourage Your Child to Create Their Own Affirmations

Children have unique thoughts and experiences, so encourage them to come up with their own affirmations that resonate with them. This will empower them and give them a sense of ownership over their own self-confidence.


Incorporating positive affirmations into your child's life can have a significant impact on their self-esteem and overall well-being. By starting early and making it a fun and regular practice, you can help your child develop a positive mindset that will benefit them throughout their life. So, let's spread positivity and self-love to the next generation through the power of affirmations. Remember, you are never too young or old to start using positive affirmations! Keep practicing and watch your child's confidence blossom. Let's continue to promote mental wellness in our children and lay a strong foundation for their future. Together, we can create a more positive and resilient generation. Keep spreading the love!
