20 Positive Things to Say to Your Kids

20 Positive Things to Say to Your Kids from Standard Deviants Accelerate

I am a pessimist and a perfectionist and while I can usually keep this to myself, sometimes I struggle with projecting this onto my kids. My problem? Kids need their buckets filled up and not emptied. They need positive, encouraging words. Now I am not saying that they should be praised at every turn, but instead that we should look for the good, point it out, and encourage our children in this way.

20 Positive Things to Say to Your Kids

In case you are like me and sometimes focus too much on the “no” or the negative, I would like to give you some ideas of things to say that are positive and encouraging, without overly praising.
