Using Positive Affirmations

Giving your kids the tools to empower themselves by using affirmations.

Using Positive Affirmations

Kids need the tools to deal with their internal critic. In my day job, I see how many children suffer from the feeling of sadness and depression. I remember in my own youth trying to navigate those feelings. We as parents and educators need to arm our children with the tools to empower themselves. Being a tween and teen is rough, it is a time of transition and they are looking to everyone to validate them. Wouldn’t it be great to give them to tools to validate themselves? Today I am sharing a little bit more about positive affirmations which you can read a little bit about here.

What are positive affirmations?

Positive Affirmations are positive statements about who you are and what you can become or experience. They help us focus on what we want, and makes us feel good. We all tend to be a little bit more negative than positive, we tend to believe the “I can’t” more than the “I can” the “I am not” more than the “I am”, it is something we have been taught for generation after generation for the most part. There are some of us who are more positive and that is great, for others, we have to work at it. Well, I am one of those people who have to work at it. But my intention is to raise my kids the best I can to be positive human beings. To be empowered and to have the tools such as using positive affirmations to help them on their journey.

Believing

If you are like me, who believe in “What we think, we create” then you can see why our thoughts, words, and beliefs are so powerful as creating tools that are at work all the time whether we are conscious of it or not. Our thoughts affect our emotions, our emotions are so powerful in creating, in attracting, in manifesting. It sets out what will come into our lives as well as what we put out. If we feel good we will be more positive, and more positive things will occur, even if something bad or disappointing happens we will handle it in a better way. While affirmations alone are not the be all, end all it is a great place to start with your children. I think it is extremely important to empower children with the I can do it attitude.

The younger the better

Since my kids are still fairly young and I have been doing this with Isabella since she was very young, I am sharing with you printable handwriting practice pages with positive affirmations. There are two copies of each page one in manuscript or print and one in cursive or script.

Writing Affirmations Out

The action of writing out and saying positive affirmations helps you to slow down and acknowledge them. It also helps you realize the negative thoughts that pop up when you are doing them. It is okay if they pop up, acknowledge, reaffirm and move on. You can use the pages I made or you can just use the affirmations. You can give one to your child a day and have them write it or create it in a fancy way with creative lettering as copy-work or you can have them use the whole sheet, or you can cut up the sheet by line.

For older kids

For older kids you may encourage them to journal and when they are at the end of their journal entry to end with positive affirmations.

Here are the affirmations you will find in the printable which you can get here.
