These positive affirmations for kids are a great way to let kids know that you appreciate them and that you’re cheering them on, no matter what challenges they face.
If you live or work with kids, you know the importance of attention – kids thrive on it. As adults and caregivers, when we focus on kids’ positive characteristics, behaviors, and achievements and when we support and reassure them through challenges and frustrations, we become one of the most important keys to self-regulation and healthy development.
Caregivers play a crucial role in supporting the development of self-regulation throughout childhood. There are tons of great activities to support self-regulation as well as fun self-regulation toys and games.
