Ten Things to Whisper in Your Child’s Ear Everyday

As a parent, it is essential to nurture your child’s emotional, social and intellectual growth. One of the ways to achieve this is through positive affirmations, which help build your child’s confidence and self-esteem. Here are ten things to whisper in your child’s ear every day.

  1. “I believe in you 100%. Whatever you want to be, I’ll be right behind you.” By telling your child this, you encourage them to follow their dreams and aspirations.
  2. “Be yourself, that’s all that you can do. You’re amazing just as you are, and I love you.” By accepting your child as they are, you help them feel valued and appreciated.
  3. “I trust you, and you can trust me. If you make a mistake or do something wrong, that’s ok! We all make mistakes!” Letting your child know that it’s okay to make mistakes and that you will still be there for them helps build a strong bond of trust.
  4. “I will always be by your side. No matter how far away you are from me, just call, and I’ll be right there!” Assuring your child that you will always be there for them gives them a sense of security and comfort.
  5. “I’m your friend. I may be a lot older than you, but I love being with you just as much as you love being with me!” Being your child’s friend helps build a healthy relationship built on trust, respect and love.
  6. “Try to be as kind as you can to everyone you meet. Smile, love, care and laugh. That’s all I ask of you.” Teaching your child to be kind and compassionate towards others helps them build empathy and positive relationships with people.
  7. “Try your best, that’s good enough for me. But whatever you do, don’t ever give up. Don’t ever let doubt get in your way. If you can imagine it, you can become it!” Encouraging your child to never give up and to believe in their dreams helps build their resilience and determination.
  8. “If you see someone crying on the playground, sitting on their own or looking lonely, go over, hold their hand and make sure they’re ok! Imagine what it would be like to be so sad!” Teaching your child to be empathetic towards others helps them build strong interpersonal skills.
  9. “Take care of plants, animals and insects. They’re all part of the universe, and so are you. The world is your home, but it’s also theirs. Let’s share it together.” Teaching your child to care for the environment helps them build a sense of responsibility towards the planet.
  10. “I love you, unconditionally!” Telling your child that you love them, no matter what, helps build their self-esteem and sense of self-worth.

  1. These are excellent reminders of what we, as educators and parents, need to instill in our children each day. Helping them to believe in themselves, and be compassionate to others and their environment is the way to create a contributing citizen in their world. As educators, it is our privilege to create an environment of love, care and a nurturing learning environment for our students to thrive in the classroom and in life. Instilling the love of learning is the most important aspect of teaching, along with love of self and others.

  2. These are fantastic!

    As a teacher I find that whispering encouraging words to a student one-on-one makes them feel special, having that unique message that will push their desire to learn and build their school relationships.

    Do you have any suggestions of what can be used in a classroom setting?
