25 Growth and Learning Affirmations for Kids

Adding helpful thoughts to the day.

We all have beliefs about our own abilities and potential. These beliefs are part of our mindset which is so powerful it can fuel our behavior and response to stress. Our Mindset shapes our everyday lives, helping us interpret our experiences and future possibilities. Establishing proactive practices with children can lead to dramatic shifts in the way they engage in self-talk.


To start, explain to kids that their mindset and the messages they send themselves throughout the day matter. To encourage engagement ask some of the following questions:


  1. What does it mean to learn and grow? What kinds of things grow?

  2. What does a mindset have to do with how you're feeling?

  3. What are some ways you can improve your feelings when you're upset?

Introducing affirmations to kids can be as simple as repeating certain phrases to them throughout the day. Adding books and stories of characters that have positive growth-minded self talk can set a great example as well.
