Positive Parenting: Daily Affirmations For Your Child
“Speak to your children as if they are the wisest, kindest, most beautiful and magical humans on earth, for what they believe is what they will become.” – Brooke Hampton
Mom life is hard, but one thing that truly helps me remain patient is knowing the gravity of my actions on the boys life. How you parent in the early years is shaping the way they will act, have relationships, and learn for the rest of their lives. WHOA. That’s some serious stuff.
If you haven’t yet, I highly recommend reading, THE GENTLE PARENT: POSITIVE, PRACTICAL, EFFECTIVE DISCIPLINE .
A simple way you can practice positive parenting, is by giving your child daily affirmations.
The simplest things can make the most profound difference.
Every night, as I carry the boys up the stairs to their cribs, I make a point to tell them things I love about them. Great things they did that day, how proud we are of them, etc. The goal is to fill their minds with positive thoughts before they fall asleep.
In the morning, right when they wake up, we do the same thing. “It’s going to be a great day!” or “I know you will do such a great job sharing with your brother today.” It really starts the day on a positive note.
Again, they are just simple things. The important part is that they believe what they are told at this stage. Imagine what they can do when they are pumped up with positive daily affirmations?!
On the long list of daily “to do’s”, this is the one thing I make a point to NEVER forget. It’s just that important.
Daily affirmations for children has amazing benefits. Positive thoughts create positive actions.
What better gift can you give your child than confidence and self-belief?
Let’s raise a generation of positive, empathetic, strong, resilient, dreamers.
