One of the most important things we can do as a parent is make sure that our children hear words of affirmation every day. Our words are SO powerful. They can tear our children down or build them up.
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue.”
I want to be sure that my words speak life to my kids.
This is such an important part of being purposeful in our parenting. We need to purposefully speak words of affirmation that build up our children.
Here are 30 words of affirmation every child needs to hear:
