Dove Positive Power of Affirmations

The power of positive affirmations

If you’re looking for ways to improve self-esteem and build confidence in kids, you might have heard about the power of affirmations. They can help us overcome negative thoughts about ourselves – which makes them the perfect tool for helping to boost children’s self-esteem.

Positive affirmations can improve our mood and help us feel happier. But what are positive affirmations, and how can they help kids? An affirmation is a positive statement that you say outloud to yourself – it could be to deal with something stressful, to build body confidence, or to praise a recent achievement. When kids repeat an affirmation every day, it can encourage them to see themselves in a more positive light. 

Positive affirmations for kids can be anything from “I’m proud of myself for trying my best at school” to “I am a fun friend”. No matter what they choose to focus on, positive affirmations will help them feel more confident in school, at home, and when spending time with their friends – helping kids to reach their full potential.

As part of the Dove Self-Esteem Project, Dove Kids Care products have prompts to help young people shine. Each bottle encourages them to try positive affirmations and become kinder to themselves. So, they’ll build self-esteem by celebrating all the things that make them unique. 

Which one of our affirmations is perfect for your child? You can choose from “I am fantastic, smart and helpful!”, “I am awesome, brave and strong!” and “I am thoughtful, caring and fun!” These affirmations for children are specially designed to help them think about more than just appearance. And the care doesn’t stop there. Every positive affirmation is paired with a fun, fragrant and colourful bath time essential to get kids excited about self-care and the best out of their new routine.
