Help your child build daily habits rooted in positive psychology with this instant download set of affirmation and gratitude cards.
Start your child’s day with a positive self-affirmation and end the day with a dose of gratitude to help them develop a strong sense of self, reduce negative thinking, and buffer stress.
One important distinction made by scientists is that positive affirmations are not simply saying positive things about yourself or building false self-esteem but instead are the ability to re-center on your values, what is important to you, and what really matters to who you are as a person -- your core self.
Each card in this deck has an affirmation and a gratitude prompt based on 8 qualities of core self values of inner strength and resilience, the 8 Cs: Curiosity, Calmness, Clarity, Courage, Connectedness, Confidence, Creativity, and Compassion.
Shuffle the deck at the beginning of each month and read one card together with your child each day.
Ask them which are their favorite affirmations and which of the 8C's resonates the most with them.
Starting a daily positive affirmation habit can boost your child's sense of who they are as a person, and what they value, and create a foundation for self-love that will stick with them throughout their lives.
