After all these years I still remember the words of encouragement and positive words of advice my mom gave to me when I was young: “Only you can make you happy.” “Make your own good time.” “When did you get so smart?” “Stick with it!” “Think BIG!” “Be proud of yourself.” “Go for it!”

You never know the words that your kids will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Words have great power. You can choose to add more positive words in your life and give your kids a great gift. Coming up with a few positive words can be the ones your dear youngsters will carry with them for the rest of their lives.

May the following positive words inspire you to turn to your kids and say something like:

1. You make me smile.

2. You are my best friend.

3. I love you to the moon and back.

4. You are creative.

5. You are strong.

6. Your choices matter.

7. You are so sweet and kind.

8. You are growing and learning so much.

9. You make a difference in my life.

10. I am proud of you.

11. I enjoy your company.

12. Thank You for being you.

13. Thank you for being my daughter/son.

14. I’m listening.

15. It’s fun to do things with you.

16. I’m so excited to see what you’ll do.

17. It’s great to spend time with you.

18. You are beautiful inside and out.

19. You are smart.

20 You are important.

Years from now when you kids need some encouragement, guidance, and/or love they’ll hear your voice and the positive words that they heard when they were young saying: “I have faith in you”. “Follow your heart.” You can handle it.” You are smart.” “You are important.” “Above all, YOU ARE LOVED!”
