60 Positive Parenting Phrases To Support Your Child’s Mental Health

Growing up hearing  positive parenting phrases is important. Because of this, I make it one of my priorities to say many of the phrases below to my son every day. When I forget to do this, I write them down as quotes and stick them in his room. This makes a huge difference to how my son feels. I also hear my son repeating these similar positive words to other people. The goal is to help our children develop such a strong positive sense of self and self-belief, that they will be guided towards positivity and bounce back from challenges. 

Why positive parenting phrases are important

Children look up to their parents. To understand this, you only have to think about how your parents impacted your life, positively or negatively. If you think about how a positive quote or affirmation can make you feel, then imagine how powerful it is to be a child hearing that from your parent. What you tell your children, they will remember and likely believe. Positive words, “can alter the expression of genes, strengthening areas in our frontal lobes and promoting the brain’s cognitive functioning.” (Andrew Newberg, M.D. and Mark Waldman).
