Growing kids are like sponges and parents know and accept this. They tend to absorb everything around them, which is why, it is super important for you, as a parent, to always say the best, positive things to your child and motivate them whenever possible.
Positive things to say to kids
Here are positive things to say to your child!
1. You Make Me Proud
No matter what the situation is, always make sure your children know that you are proud of them. Mention this specifically whenever they make good choices and it’ll have a huge impact on them. Make sure you mention this specifically when they fail at something and remind them that you’re proud of them and their efforts and that the outcome may change, but your feelings about them won’t.
2. I Love it When You
Telling your kids that you love them is important, so make sure you do it often. But also remember to specify the little things that they do that make you love them even more, such as when they hug you without asking or share things with their siblings, etc.. Be affectionate with your children.
3. You are so Strong
There’s no better way to encourage your children to conquer their fears than to point out their strengths by saying you are strong. Be the one who admires their strength when they take that leap of faith and do the things they were scared to do, or achieve something they were not sure about. It will have a dramatic positive impact on them and will boost their morale.
4. Thank you!
One of the things you should say to your child is thank you! Don’t hold back from letting out these two words to your kid. Using words of appreciation more frequently will make your child feel valued and appreciated and will push him towards doing more of those things. Little things such as praising your child when they prepares the table for breakfast, or pours out the water for the dog, can make a big difference.
5. You are Kind
Even if your child hasn’t done many kind things in the day, find positive things to say to your child. Find that one little thing, and point that out to him. Doing that will encourage him to do it even more and this works for literally every other quality that you want them to develop.
6. Have a Terrific Day
There’s just something about motivating your child to have a nice day that will make them take on things better and with a different spirit. Be there with a smiling and ‘go do it face’ for them. It’ll inspire them more than you can imagine.
7. I am Thankful for You
One of the most positive things you could tell your child is how thankful you are to have them in your life. Having their presence appreciated is one of the most uplifting things anyone could hear, especially children.
