According to the experts, daily positive affirmations are the key to helping to improve your child’s mental health and assure that this small gesture will have lasting affects for generations to come.

First, just what are “positive affirmations?”


According to, positive affirmations are positively loaded phrases, or statements that are used to challenge unhelpful or negative thoughts.

“Kids are like sponges, and you never know which phrase they’ll latch on to and remember for years after you say it, becoming something they repeat to themselves to help get them through tough times — or maybe becoming something they pass on to friends, wanting to spread the joy, Robyn Landa wrote in an article for “Our words, actions, and attitude have ripple effects, which is a lesson worth demonstrating to our children.”
