  1. A short sentences but they get to do a lot, great work sharing them, I will do the same!

  2. I think adults need to hear these things, too! :)

    Unrelated, but something I’m sure you’d be interested in… Eli Altman is running a Kickstarter on the business of running a creative studio at the moment, called “Run Studio Run”. It has nothing to do with me, but I’ve backed it, and if you think it worthwhile, it would be great if you could put the word out to the creative family. <3 your work, Tina! Xox

  3. I´m with Ginger (comment above) – All people need them!
    many ♡ ly greetings sent by
    Sabine from WO(rms) in Germany

  4. Alternately, #2 can be phrased as “You can be really proud of yourself.” This allows the child to form a sense of pride, without needing to seek that feeling from others.

  5. A short sentences but a lot of meaning

  6. Ooh, someone should make this into a print and I’d hang it in my daughter’s bedroom.

  7. Kids need to hear these things, adults need to hear it too.

  8. Love this sentiment! Error in the title: Every *Kid* Needs

  9. As an older mother of the y gen, you forgot one thing … it’s okay to say
    You are wrong. I grew up self affirming my kids to the point that they were over affirmed . I think that every now and then it’s okay to challenge and disagree. It’s called balance

  10. As an older mother of the y gen you left out “ you are wrong” . I self affirmed my kids to the point that they had no balance. Unconditional love is a no brainer, and forgiveness, being proud should be shown. But I disagree with “you’ve got what it takes”. Encourage them (always) but sometimes they are not going to win the race or come top of the class,
    Please think about the expections you place when saying this
