PIN 2 positive affirmations for kids

Affirmations are powerful words which anyone can recite daily. Positive affirmations for kids are even better.

This will ensure that they start to learn self-confidence and empowerment from a young age.

Affirmations are powerful words which affirm, or strengthen those who recite them.

I recently began reciting positive affirmations myself and have noticed the tremendous impact it has had on my self-esteem, thoughts, and emotions.

Recently, I reflected on when my low self-esteem began, and it started in my childhood. My parents encouraged me but I rarely affirmed myself.

One day the thought of typing positive affirmations for my daughters to affirm themselves crossed my mind.

I recognise the power of positive thinking and positive self-talk in my own life, and thought a print-out would be useful for kids. They could stick them on their walls or carry them around with them if they wanted to.

If kids can have more tools in their arsenal of self-confidence, that’s a good thing right? Right!

Why Positive Affirmations for Kids?

Affirmations strengthen those who recite them and can boost self-esteem and confidence.

Some kids may not express themselves to others in the most positive way. We’ve heard all too often about kids who taunt others in the playground, and notoriously, on social media.

Even worse is negative self-talk that can escalate if not reversed and replaced with positive words of encouragement and empowerment.

As soon as kids learn to talk and are faced with challenges, such as being unable to get their toy to do what they want, for example, they often yell out “I can’t do it!”

All these factors can eventually have a negative impact on kids’ minds and their self-confidence from quite a young age.

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you are probably right”

Henry Ford.

Science and affirmations

Scientific evidence informs us that when people self-affirm, central neural pathways responsible for positive, self-related information processing, are usually increased.

Another study showed that when we recite positive affirmations, we are better able to view negative information as more self-relevant and valuable.

We can learn from negative experiences.

Education and Affirmations

It’s no news that children face various challenges in school.

One study found that university students who self-affirmed increased their grades over three semesters. It is important to note that affirmation included verbal as well as written affirmations.

I often write my affirmations in my journal as well as recite them, and have noticed a boost in my self-confidence.

Your kids’ Happiness Means your Happiness

I don’t know about you, but when my children are happy and joyful, I’m happy and joyful.

Life surely can bring various challenges, which should be dealt with as they come. What’s key is how you deal with those challenges.

Generally speaking, when your children are joyful and empowered, you may also be joyful.

Consequently, this may positively influence your health and well-being.

Below are the positive affirmations for kids and teenagers.

  1. Hi it’s Brenda from RubyHemMinistries.com I love these affirmations and even though I know you said they’re for kids/teens I could see myself using some of them. Heck, I could even see the kids/teens who use them know using them into adulthood themselves. Great post!
