145+ Powerfully Positive Affirmations for Kids

Updated: Jun 19, 2019

Growing up as a kid can be a tough ride. It comes with a lot of fun, but at the same time, children are also facing many difficulties, troubles, and fears—anxieties that are often difficult to understand for us as parents. Often times, we feel helpless as parents, not knowing what we can do to lighten up the mood of our kids. Positive affirmations can help in such cases. It is the kind of positive programming that aids children with their self-mastery. In the following, you can find a selection of very powerful and positive affirmations, specifically designed for kids.

Before we start, one important question:

Why are positive affirmations so important during childhood?

Research has shown that we all learn our belief systems as little children. It is the very belief system that functions as the foundation of our entire life. This means that adults move through life trying to experience situations that match their beliefs learned from childhood. But it also means that we are often bound to the limiting beliefs learned during childhood. These negative thought patterns can be attributed to childhood conditioning or unconsciously picking up negative beliefs.

For this very reason, it is so important to help your children establish a supportive belief system showing them a positive attitude to life. By doing so we can help our children to internalize good values and positive beliefs, which allows them to develop confidence and a healthy dose of self-esteem.

Creating affirmations cards for your children

You can use the above-mentioned affirmations to write them down onto cards with bright colors and fun pictures. I always make sure to add some kind of an inspiring picture, for instance, stars, flowers, trees or animals. You can also use pieces of patterned paper that you stick onto the cards.

Tip: get your kids involved in creating the affirmation cards. They will definitely contribute some fantastic ideas on how you can improve the affirmations and the design of the cards.

You will see how much your kids will love their self-created cards. They will be excited to flip through their stable of cards, reading the affirmations aloud.

How to use affirmation cards?

Here’s how you can use the affirmation cards you created:

  • Picking a card: encourage your child to pick a random affirmation card that is going to be repeated for about 3-4 weeks, until the next card is selected.

  • Repeating the affirmation: let your kid read the affirmation 5-10 times aloud.

  • Making it fun: make sure your kid is in a good mood and reads the affirmation cards in a positive way.

  • The right time: the ideal time to let your child read the affirmations is either in the morning or just before going to sleep. During these times your kids subconscious is more open to the affirmations.

  • A feeling of magic: an excellent way to get your kid motivated to read the positive affirmations is by telling them that the affirmations act like magic words that become true if only repeated often enough.

Following the above-mentioned tips will help you to incite excitement about the affirmations cards in your kids.
