Children are sponges. They soak up a lot of what is shown and said. At this point in your life, you are learning for the first time how the world works and how you should react to it. Your little ones are paying attention to you (how you say and do things). As the old adage goes, actions speak louder than words. Make sure that everything you say to your child matches what you do. Keep reading our article and discover 7 powerful phrases that every child should hear daily, or at least start listening more frequently to feed their emotional intelligence and self-confidence.

7 powerful phrases every child should hear every day

Help your child become a confident and respectful adult by using and following these powerful life-changing phrases.

1. “Don’t be afraid of mistakes, accept them!”

When your child fails, make sure they know that there is nothing wrong with mistakes, as long as they keep moving forward. Help him learn the good that comes from failure. Ask questions like “what did you learn?” and “what do you think you could do differently next time?” These questions highlight the value of failure. And confessing your mistakes to your child will have a profound effect on them. They will learn that even their hero makes mistakes, and that’s okay!

2. “Chase your dreams!”

Do what you want to do, even if what you want doesn’t make sense to anyone else. Suppressing your dreams puts you at odds with yourself. Doing what someone else wants you to do will only leave you depressed and empty. Don’t live someone else’s life. Your passions and dreams have a purpose in this world, and so do you!

3. “Be grateful!”

And you’re not just grateful, you practice gratitude. Be intentional about it. This means setting aside time each day with your child to talk about all the things that you are both thankful for. Complaining about what you don’t have creates a negative outlook. But being grateful for what you already have promotes a mindset of satisfaction and positivity, making it easier to enjoy life and complete new goals.

4. “Say what you think!”

Your child has a voice. Teach him that he is important and that his ideas are not stupid. It takes courage to not always let others run the program, but with proper instruction, they can learn to share their thoughts with others efficiently. Tell your child that even if he is shy and fearful, sharing his ideas could produce powerful results. If you can, use a specific example from your own life.

5. “Treat others with respect, even if you disagree with them.”

If we let them, the kids would live online all day. People can be ugly to each other, and especially on the Internet, cruel comments spread like a disease. When children see it on the Internet, it is too easy for them to learn to be disrespectful, online and in person. Eliminate hatred by teaching your child that everyone, even those who disagree with him, deserves his respect. Golden rule: It is not questioned whether someone is worthy of respect. Instead, always assume that they are, and treat them accordingly.

6. “You are what you think.”

Teach your child that his thoughts have power. One way to do this is to practice the end of the day on a positive note. Too often, we end the day tired, frustrated, and full of worry. Change your mindset and help change your child’s by listing the happy things that happened that day – even something as little as remembering the joy of drinking a glass of chocolate milk can help change your child’s mindset for the better.

7. “Don’t let anyone steal your joy.”

You can’t control what other people do, but you can control how you react. Don’t focus on other people’s bad behavior and rude comments, and don’t turn your back on who you are for fear of their judgment. If you care about what other people think of you, they will always keep you in captivity. Show your kids how to break free and blatantly be themselves with these powerful quotes . There they will find true joy.
