Affirmations are a powerful and holistic way of building a positive & happy mind.  It is very empowering for a child to create positive beliefs in themselves so it is much harder for people to tear them down. If we feel we are worthless, we will behave like we are worthless. If we believe that we are special and loved, we will behave like we are special and loved. This is why affirmations are so important to help children develop positive foundations on which they grow. Creating an inner confidence in children can shape their whole life.

It is important that we learn to take control of our belief systems and the younger that we learn, the easier it is. It can be as simple as affirming the positive beliefs that we would like to grow up with. Negative beliefs can impact our lives greatly and can be hard to shift as we grow older.

Affirmations can be introduced to children under the age of 5 or 6. This works very well and affirmations used at this age create strong and healthy foundations. As important as it is for parents to encourage, love and support their children, it is just as important that children learn to create this within themselves. Affirmations are more effective when repeated and it’s best to repeat an affirmation 2 times, saying the words louder and with more confidence each time. This helps affirm their beliefs.

Affirmations are the most powerful when we say the words to ourselves whilst looking into a mirror. These positive words are literally building our own self-belief. Young children introduced to this concept feel more comfortable and far less confronted looking at them in the mirror. If you find that your children feel it is difficult to look into the mirror to say their affirmations, it is best not to push them. Let them read or listen to an Audio before Sleeping. Affirmations are still very effective by just reading or listening to the words aloud to oneself.

Give your kids a kick start in life. Teach them to believe in themselves by listening and singing along to these positive affirmations.
