101 Affirmations for Children

by Evelyn on March 22, 2010

I compiled a list of affirmations for children recently from a wish to help mine with self-mastery and positive programming . As adults, many of our limiting thought patterns can be attributed to childhood conditioning or having unconsciously adopted negative societal beliefs. While we look for ways to help realign ourselves, how about starting with a better way forward in our children?

Most certainly, we can help our kids with instilling good values, confidence, focus and belief. Positive affirmations for children can do a lot to assist them in developing healthy self esteem. We can also target some for the purposes of having an easier time with their school work.

If you like the idea as well, here is the list which I would like to share….

Make Affirmation Cards For Children

The affirmation cards for my children were made with bright and fun colors. I added some pictures of flowers, stars and patterned paper to a stack of blank cards in blue. I had found the cards lying around and was wondering what to do with them when the idea struck that I should create affirmation cards on-the-go for them as well.

Create Affirmation Cards: A Weekend or Holiday Project for Your Children?

For ownership, I decided to involve my two girls in the project. My kids helped with sticking the affirmations on and providing some ideas.

Their final feedback?

They love it! They enjoy flipping through and reading the cards aloud!

Hi there,

Hmmm….your comment makes me wonder why affirmations have never taught in school!

Thank you for your lovely comment about my girls :-)


Evelyn April 20, 2010 at 11:14 am

Hello Mel,

I like the “smile” affirmation, something that I need to encourage my girls to do more with strangers! Myself including!!!


Evelyn April 20, 2010 at 11:16 am

Hello Jeremy,

You can do anything you wish with your cards. Kids can be very visual. Remember the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words”?

Glad you like the idea!

Evelyn April 20, 2010 at 11:17 am

Oh wow, I am very impressed! Love your idea!! Thumbs up to rewarding her with stickers to decorate the pages!

To more power in our children,

Evelyn April 20, 2010 at 11:18 am

Stay awesome!

Hello Rachel,

Thank you for your appreciation! While I enjoy giving and sharing my ideas, I am grateful to receive your lovely feedback.

May your light shine always!

What a great list of affirmations for children. I am introducing the idea of affirmations to my children, in particular to try and reverse my son’s negative way of thinking into something positive. Based on reading I have been doing on various sites I explained to him that they are like magic words (he is 8) and if repeated often enough they gain enough strength to become true. Thanks for such a great list as well as the idea of the cards. I think we will be making some at our house soon.

I just came across your website and I love it! :)
The 101 Affirmations For Children is an excellent idea and I completely agree that children should be taught such basic [yet very important] ideas and beliefs from a very young age. I am a teenager and I wish I had received those sort of phrases of encouragement at kindergarten or at school! Nevertheless, I am finally beginning to really see the importance of self-love and spirituality.

Anyhow, Evelyn I must thank you for making such an uplifting website. It has truly brought a smile to my face. :)
Have a nice day!

I really love your website, however; I lost the link to your daily “Inspirational Messages”.

Please link….

Thank you,

This is very good :)
When I was a kid, my mathematics teacher always told me “you cant”, and I was really fed up with my studies. Now I understand the most important thing is to plant these kind of positive affirmations in a students mind, so that he’d be the most he can. And I know she did it on purpose, because I wasn’t her favorite student in the class. I was thinking how could some one be so cruel to a 12 year old ?

Hi Evelyn,
Thank you so much for the list of affirmations and the card idea! I am a speech/language pathologist working in a public elementary school and I have made a set to use with my students. The student chooses a card on the ring and reads it aloud or I read it to him/her, then we briefly discuss it. I tell the children that is their thought for the day. I have also started taking the cards to our special education meetings to use with my colleagues. We also need to do some positive thinking if we are to be modeling it for our students! I love it! Thanks again!

Lisa October 19, 2010 at 10:22 am

P.S. I also wanted to mention that I introduce the idea of affirmations by reading Louise Hay’s book entitled, “I Think, I Am”. This is a book for children explaining what affirmations are and how to use them. Great book and goes so well with the cards.

Nici November 1, 2010 at 5:51 pm

Hi Evelyn – great list! I am a bit confused how to do affirmations with my 3 year old if she cant read yet? Do I ask her to repeat them after me? Or if I am reading them to her do I change “I” to “you”?

Thanks Nici
