59 Best Positive Affirmations for Kids

Two kids — a brother and sister — sit on a soft couch and look out the window while they practice their positive affirmations

I have a confession to make: Snoop Dogg’s Doggyland “Affirmation Song” is indeed on my morning routine Spotify playlist. There’s no shame about it; it’s exactly what I needed as a kid, and it still imparts a pearl of daily wisdom we could all benefit from.

While affirmations are an awesome, confidence-building tool for everyone, they’re especially important for kiddos who are in the process of building their worldviews and perceptions of themselves

By nipping negative thought patterns in the bud from an early age, children can develop with confidence and kindness — and all it takes is a simple daily practice.

Explore our main article of The Best Positive Affirmations and all of our other collections of positive affirmations:

Whether you’re planning to practice affirmations as a family, on the way to school in the morning, in a journal, or even with flashcards, they’re one of the easiest ways to incorporate social-emotional learning into daily life, and make your children feel loved and empowered.
