Pro tip: How to get started

Choose affirmations for yourself as well and participate in the ritual alongside your child, so you’re modeling the behavior rather than simply imposing it.

If you are stuck and don’t know where to start, using pre-printed affirmation cards is a good place to start looking.

To get your child started on this journey, pre-printed affirmation cards for kids can get them going and as they improve, they can start to write their own.

Put the cards into their school bags and lunch boxes or stick them on their wall or mirror at home so that they read them over and over again.
