A few weeks back I attended the Bumps and Baby Expo were I met the wonderful Baby Mindful York, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful Sherrie before at another event where she introduced me to her Mindful classes for baby’s and children. I am a huge believer in Mindfulness and the incredible effects it can have on adults an children. Another thing that Sherrie introduced me to was the idea of daily affirmations and the positive effect it can have on your outlook. Each time I have seen Sherrie she has encouraged me to choose 1 of her affirmation cards and I have them on my fridge to remind myself every day I am a Possitive mumma!
I decided that if daily affirmations were helping me so much then it wouldn’t do any hard introducing the idea to my kids…especially on a morning when everything is completely hectic. The girls are arguing over whos got the wrong jumper on and im usually still in a medication haze and half asleep.
As important as it is for parents to encourage, love and support their children, it is just as important that children learn to create this within themselves. It is very empowering for a child to create positive beliefs in themselves so it is much harder for people to tear them down.
I want to be able to help my children nurture their own self belief through the power of affirmations which I hope will stay with them for life. Our own belief systems are developed about us and the world around us depending on the environment. Our own family, friends, television, internet, role models and media in general can either nurture or damage us and our children. So as a mother it is my job to take control of mine and my kids belief systems, the younger my children are the easier it will be for them to get into the habit of using affirmations in their lives. Negative beliefs can have such a negative impact on our lives and can be really difficult to shift as we grow up.
Affirmations are a powerful and holistic way of building a positive mind and happier children. Nurturing their authentic self and helping them to enjoy the magic of childhood.Ripple kindness programme
