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 – lots of studies show this. 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 children repeat an affirmation every day, it encourages 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, the effects of positive affirmations will help them feel more confident in school, at home, and with their friends, so they can reach their full potential.

As part of the Dove Self-Esteem Project, the packaging of the Dove Kids Care range has prompts for you and your child to practice together – creating the chance for them to try positive affirmations and become kinder to themselves. So, they’ll build self-esteem by celebrating their uniqueness and encouraging them to shine every time they pick up the bottle.

Which one of our affirmations will your child like best? They can choose from “I am fantastic, smart and helpful!”, “I am awesome, brave and strong!” and “I am thoughtful, caring and fun!” They’re specially designed to help children think about more than just appearance. And the care doesn’t stop there. Every positive affirmation is paired with a fun, fragrant and colorful product to get kids excited about self-care, so they can get the best out of their new routine.
