Watch This Mama Give Her Kids the Most Beautiful Mantra

We're stealing this!

For most parents, the ultimate goal in raising children is to help them become the best version of themselves they can possibly be — and to believe in themselves along the way, no matter what challenges they face. Obviously, this is easier said than done, but there's one mom out there who is inspiring us to help our kids start boosting their self esteem with their own words.

In a video the mom posted on TikTok, she shared the positive affirmations she has her daughter repeat after her on a regular basis. They're riding a mountain bike together when the three-year-old little girl enthusiastically repeats each statement her mom gives her: We can do it, I am strong, I believe in myself, I am an important person, I love all of my friends, and I love myself." 

This is so cute — and honestly, something that would be good for most kids.


"In the past when I said positive mantras to myself out loud I felt silly. Ironically, when I started saying them to my babies when I had kids, it felt powerful," Mom explained in her caption. "Discovering how special and impactful positive self talk was for children helped me realize how important it is for me too." 

She's taking the idea of faking it 'til you make it to another level, and we don't doubt that this child is already cultivating a positive inner voice, instead of one that brings her down.

This is something we need to try. Our kids deserve to believe these things (and more) about themselves!
