What Are Affirmations?
Affirmations are different from quotes. Affirmations are simple, present tense, positive, personal and specific statements that you repeat to yourself – you say them over and over to yourself or they can be written down frequently until you eventually automatically & subconsciously embody it in your life.
According to Wikipedia, affirmations in New Thought and New Age terminology refer primarily to the practice of positive thinking and self-empowerment — fostering a belief that "a positive mental attitude supported by affirmations will achieve success in anything."
What Are Positive Affirmations for Kids?

Why Affirmations Are Important for Children?
As important as it is for parents to encourage, love and support in their child, it is just as important that children learn to create this within themselves.
Affirmations are a powerful and holistic way of building a positive mindset and ultimately happier children. By nurturing their authentic self, positive affirmations may help them to enjoy the magic of childhood and to believe in themselves as they build in confidence and self-esteem.
Through this process they may recognise what they enjoy doing and that they are good at something thus encouraging them to share their skills with others which is an essential building block for resiliency.
Affirmations literally mean "to affirm to one's self". Therefore, positive words which are absorbed by the mind will help create your belief system.
Once the affirmations are learnt, they work automatically by coming to your mind when that belief is challenged. By saying affirmations (whether out loud or mentally) - even just a few positive words spoken each day - can make such a difference in one's life.
In fact, a recent study found that children’s self-esteem & how they feel about themselves, is established during their kindergarten years and remains relatively stable into adulthood.
Another study found that affirmations could decrease stress, increase wellbeing, improve academic performance and encourage behaviour changes. We feel this to be a core reason why it's so important for children to practice positive affirmations from a young age; developing foundations on which to grow, kids can become much more prepared to use them when facing difficulties later in life.
