Positive affirmations can do wonders for a child’s mental and emotional well-being. Use our free downloadable to incorporate affirmations into your kids’ routine.

Have you imagined the impact it would have if someone had repeatedly told you as a child, over and over, that you could achieve anything you desired? The more you thought about it, the more it would become a belief and the higher the chances that it would become a reality. This is where affirmations come in.

Positive affirmations are simple statements that are repeated to oneself to reinforce positive thoughts and beliefs. While it’s never too late to start using affirmations, it’s especially effective for kids’ young and easily influenced minds. When children practice affirmations regularly, they internalise positive messages and develop a strong sense of self-worth.

Not sure where to begin? We’ve put together some simple kids’ affirmations below that you can start using with kids as young as 3 years old. To incorporate affirmations into your child’s routine, encourage them to choose a few affirmations that resonate with them. Have your child repeat their chosen affirmations daily, either in the morning or before bedtime.

To make it fun and interactive, print out this downloadable version and stick it on a wall or cut it along the dotted lines to create affirmation cards.
