145+ Powerfully Positive Affirmations for Kids


Growing up as a kid can be a tough ride. It comes with a lot of fun, but at the same time, children are also facing many difficulties, troubles, and fears—anxieties that are often difficult to understand for us as parents. Often times, we feel helpless as parents, not knowing what we can do to lighten up the mood of our kids. Positive affirmations can help in such cases. It is the kind of positive programming that aids children with their self-mastery. In the following, you can find a selection of very powerful and positive affirmations, specifically designed for kids.

Before we start, one important question:

Why are positive affirmations so important during childhood?

Research has shown that we all learn our belief systems as little children. It is the very belief system that functions as the foundation of our entire life. This means that adults move through life trying to experience situations that match their beliefs learned from childhood. But it also means that we are often bound to the limiting beliefs learned during childhood. These negative thought patterns can be attributed to childhood conditioning or unconsciously picking up negative beliefs.

For this very reason, it is so important to help your children establish a supportive belief system showing them a positive attitude to life. By doing so we can help our children to internalize good values and positive beliefs, which allows them to develop confidence and a healthy dose of self-esteem.

How to use affirmation cards?

Here’s how you can use the affirmation cards you created:

  • Picking a card: encourage your child to pick a random affirmation card that is going to be repeated for about 3-4 weeks, until the next card is selected.
  • Repeating the affirmation: let your kid read the affirmation 5-10 times aloud.
  • Making it fun: make sure your kid is in a good mood and reads the affirmation cards in a positive way.
  • The right time: the ideal time to let your child read the affirmations is either in the morning or just before going to sleep. During these times your kids subconscious is more open to the affirmations.

  1. 80. I ready eight cloth.
    I like this post. There are a few minor typos, grammatical errors, and repetitions that can be worked around, but I can’t make any sense of #80… Is is supposed to say “I’m ready at eight o’clock”? If so, how does that apply?

  2. Thanks Steve.I was wondering what i will use as a gift to encourage my children.But i can now make cards with afirmation words that will motivate them

  3. Thank you for this information it is very helpful. Also I feel I need to ask are the replies to our comments answered by a computer ?

  4. ☮Hello there Steeeeve!! 😎😀😆 Thank YOU! So many good ones listed that I/We will be using for sure! I’m excited to get started!
    Kind regards 🐝

  5. God IS in control, no ifs ands buts or maybes!
    Proverbs 1:7 reads as follows: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: But fools despise wisdom and instruction. Fear is better translated ‘Reverance’. God will not be mocked. Have an Awesome day in the Lord!
    Sincerely, Rich

  6. Kids have assertiveness issues. We need affirmations to bring them out of the fear of assertiveness. They fear their parents peers bullies.

  7. Thank you Steve for this list. I’ve change it a bit and shortened it to 80. It is inspiring and will be perfect to use with our crafts. We have the Big Life journal and now will add these to our affirmation circle.
    Thank you for sharing,

  8. Thanks – this is exactly what I was looking for to help my 5 year old son for an assertivesness boost. The simple and clear affirmations ware just what I needed to get started. Much appreciated.

  9. Thanks Steve!

    Im going to print these affirmations out, what a great practice for the kids

    I love sharing humandalas with the youth (& adults!)

    Humandalas are a great way to connect, share intentions and appreciation through guided movement meditation. It’s a beautiful and simple practice.

  10. While fighting stage 3C ovarian/uterine cancer, my mantra was – I can AND I will. I frequently put the emphasis on different parts of the mantra depending on what strength I need from it. 13 and a half years later, I’m still cancer free. I could and I did. As an educator, I loved your articles.

  11. My son is nearly 12 years old. I find it very difficult to inspire him in a positive way since he doesn’t accept any compliments. Each time I say something positive to him he just shy’s away or find something wrong with him. Thank you for these quotes I’ll be trying hard to use them and help him come out of this situation.
