Positive Affirmations for Kids
Here is a great selection positive affirmations for kids. We all know our children today are the leaders of tomorrow. Whilst it is important to provide our children with physical comforts such as food and clothes it is also vital to nourish them mentally.
What we feed them mentally will become their guiding inner voice for the rest of their lives. As our children grow we are not always going to be around speaking for them or encouraging them. Therefore, it is important that they develop a strong inner voice that they take with them everywhere ready to to tackle any situation that they face.
The brain is like a sponge, if a child is continously told that they are not good enough, this will become engrained into their personality and they grow with an inferiority complex. It therefore just makes sense that if we want kids with a positive outlook on life we must feed them positivity.
Children like adults face challenges as they grow. As they start school they soon realise that they have to be good at handwriting, maths etc. It is no longer about their cuteness but now they need to earn that star. As they struggle with their learning challenges it is easy for them to sway into negative thining patterns such as
“I am not good enough”, I cannot do this”
These negative thoughts can easily spiral out of control and result in kids who feel overwhelmed. So how can we help our children face their challenges and come out on the other side as it were?
Well affirmations are one great tool that we can easily use to promote positive thinking and a can do lion attitude. When our children are mentally strong, they are well equipped to rise to the challenges they may face.
Here is a great selection of kids affirmations that we have split into various sections for your pick, enjoy!

Positive Kids Affirmations To Nurture Self-Love
Louise Hay whom I hold in high regards says,
“When people start to love themselves more each day, it’s amazing how their lives get better. They feel better. They get the jobs they want. They have the money they need. Their relationships either improve, or the negative ones dissolve and new ones begin.”
Unfortunately, self love is not something that comes naturally to most of us. Through life, through comparing ourselves to others and through what others may have done or said about us, many of us have mastered self loathing instead of self loving.
However, all is not lost. We just need to be awakened to the miracle of us and affirmations are a great way of rekindling self love. As our children grow, it is important that we also teach them to love themselves. Let us be proactive parents and not leave our children at the mercy of the unrealistic images all over social media. Self love affirmations will anchor in our children that they are perfect as they are.

Society often has the habit of seeing the glass as half empty. The media makes us lean on the negative side of things and before we know it our kids have picked up on the same negativity.
