I’ve been writing quite a bit about back to school lately. From calming those back-to-school jitters to clever school lunch hacks, there are several ways to help ease into the new routine. Starting each day on a positive note is so important, and as parents, we can help our children understand the importance of taking ownership of their own attitudes and embracing everything that is positive about each day.
One way I love to do this is by stating positive affirmations with my kids each day. I find that saying one positive thing in the morning helps them feel great about themselves. I know that this confidence carries over into their school day. It’s just another example of how having the right foundation can be so impactful on our kids’ each and every day.
Breakfast is another really important piece of the puzzle when it comes to starting the day on a good note.
My kids love Odom’s Tennessee Pride Snack Size Sausage and Buttermilk Biscuits, and I love knowing they have eaten a protein-packed breakfast that will keep them feeling full and happy as they go into their school day.
It doesn’t hurt at all that I can make this breakfast in less than a minute. On those busy mornings when we’re all running around like crazy people that is beyond priceless.
As I mentioned above, I love starting our morning by stating a positive affirmation. I keep this little list of positive affirmations for kids in my purse, and we all choose one in the care before I drop the kids off. I wrote these positive affirmations for my kids, but honestly, it does me good to state them as well. It’s a great reminder to our kids they are loved, special and unique in their own ways.
You can also print this list and cut the affirmations out. Place one in your child’s lunch box each day as a special reminder that you care and that they are awesome! Click the image below to download these free positive affirmations printable for kids!
