45 Kids Affirmations for Self Love

Kids affirmations for self love

As we continue to plough our way through the quagmire that is living through a pandemic I continue to become more and more focused on the concepts of self care and self love.   And I have been using affirmations for self love to help keep me strong and positive during all the ups and downs that we have had to face, but what about the kids?

The effects of this on them are really unknown at this point, but I have already seen with my own children that their self confidence has taken a knock.  I think all their resilience has been used up just dealing with the pandemic and now being at school and having to handle all the entirely normal aspects of growing up and interacting with peers is a lot for them to deal with. 

So I have started using affirmations for self love with them too after all the journey to self love and positivity can be a long one so why not start young.  I thought I would share them in case your kids could also use some extra positivity and self love right about now.

What are affirmations and why bother?

Affirmations are simple statements that when repeated and internalised can help you to shift negative thinking and change your outlook to be more positive.  Speaking affirmations for self love can help an individual develop self esteem and an inner positivity that then frames their outlook on the world.  

With the kids affirmations for self love I tend to say them to them and ask them to repeat after me.  We do this in the morning before heading to school and I use different affirmations for different children depending on what I understand to be the issues they are facing.

I believe that doing this on a daily basis will support my children to develop a positive sense of self and to face the world each day feeling good.  What is the saying ‘if you don’t love yourself how is anyone else going to love you?’

I have put together some of the affirmations for self love for kids that we use and that my children enjoy.
