This video helps us believe that if a child can feel the power of positive self-talk, we can do it too.
A mother taught her two-year-old three short phrases to use as positive affirmations. “I am smart, I am blessed, I can do anything.”
Although he couldn’t say the positive affirmations at the time, hearing his mother repeat those phrases helped his brain retain them until he was older.
One day as they walked to school, the little boy started saying the phrases. The more he said to them, the happier he seemed to be.
His mother was surprised and started videoing him as they walked. You can hear him saying the positive affirmations while he smiles ear to ear.
The mother said that she was “proud of the little boy he was growing into.” She hopes he will use the words to motivate himself.
