Seven Positive Affirmations for Moms

Everybody needs some encouragement every once in a while (or sometimes every day!).  Positive affirmations can be very empowering, especially in trying situations.  Below are 7 images with positive affirmations for mothers.  Use the phrases below (or create your own!) as your personal mantra.  Repeat it to yourself, either in your head or out load (been there!) when you need a reminder.

 

I always do my best to meet my child's needs

 

 

I am a capable mother

 

 

 

I am a loving and strong mother

 

 

 

I am a patient mother

 

 

 

I am the best mother I can be

 

 

 

I can handle this

 

 

 

I am the expert on my child Note on this last one: This can be such an empowering statement for a struggling parent.  During therapy sessions, I often tell parents that they are the expert on their children.  I may have a lot of knowledge about behavioral interventions with children, but it’s important to remember that the PARENTS are the experts on their child’s personality, likes, dislikes, motivators, and idiosyncrasies.  You know your child best.
