Did you know that 75% of the messages that children receive before the age of seven are NEGATIVE?

Fortunately, any caring parent or caregiver can turn this around by teaching children positive affirmations.

Affirmations empower children to direct and control their inner self-talk, which in turn build high self-esteem and self-confidence. 

In researching my book, The Power of Positive Talk, I discovered a number of areas where affirmations have been successfully used with children.

These include:

  • Positive Self-Talk For Self-Esteem
  • Positive Self-Talk for Health, Body Image and Athletic Performance
  • Positive Self-Talk for Learning and Academics
  • What to Say When You Are Scared: Positive Self-Talk for Childhood Fears
  • What to Say When You Are Sad: Positive Self-Talk for Loss, Divorce and Sadness
  • What to Say When You Are Mad: Positive Self-Talk for Anger Management
  • What to Say When You Are Teased: Positive Self-Talk for Responding to Put Downs
  • Positive Self-Talk for the Child With a Physical, Emotional, or Learning Disability
  • Positive Self-Talk for the At-Risk and Acting Out Child

These and hundreds of other affirmations are included in the book The Power of Positive Talk. This guide that not only teaches children self-esteem through the affirmation process; it also features chapters that help adults deal with their own negative tendencies, so that they can be a model of someone who speaks positively to themselves.

I hope that you will be inspired to obtain a copy of The Power of Positive Talk, as it’s affirming messages can make a real difference for the special child in your life.

Sincerely,

Douglas Bloch, M.A.
