Building Resilience & Confidence as They Head Back to School

What are daily affirmations?

Daily affirmations are positive statements that can help children develop a strong sense of self-worth and confidence. These statements are repeated regularly to reinforce positive beliefs and encourage resilience in the face of challenges. Pro Tip: these aren't just for kids!

Why are they so important?

Children face various obstacles and setbacks as they grow and navigate the world. Daily affirmations can provide them with a powerful tool to overcome self-doubt, negative thoughts, and difficult situations. By practicing daily affirmations, children can build resilience, boost their self-esteem, and develop a positive mindset. Probably something we could all use, right?!

How do I introduce them to my child?

1. Choose affirmations: Select positive statements that resonate with your child's interests, strengths, and areas they want to improve. For example, "I am brave," "I am kind," or "I can achieve anything I set my mind to."

2. Create a routine: Set aside a specific time each day to practice affirmations. It could be in the morning before school or during bedtime. Consistency is key.

3. Repeat and believe: Encourage your child to repeat the affirmations out loud or silently. Emphasize the importance of believing in the words they are saying.

4. Encourage reflection: After reciting the affirmations, ask your child how they feel and if they noticed any positive changes in their thoughts or actions.
