How words spoken into a child’s mind ‘wire’ them for the future.


You may remember the messages your parents handed on to you. The negative ones may have stuck with you and still affect your view of yourself, such as “You clumsy Clot,” “Idiot,” “You’ll never amount to anything,” or the positive ones such as “Respect yourself,” “You can do it,” “Winners never quit.” “You may sometimes suffer defeat, but you don’t ever have to be defeated.” “Things don’t always have to go right for me to be happy.”

We have the power in our words to leave good, energizing and healing messages in our children’s heads and thus ensure their future. It will be their good and bad beliefs that determine their attitudes and actions. 

Messages such as the following will mold a child’s view of his own ability as well as his values: 

There’s no problem so big that it can’t be solved
You’re a helpful person
Tough times don’t last but tough people do
You make friends easily
Honesty is the best policy
Mistakes are OK. Mistakes can be fixed
The person who never made a mistake never made anything
They need to hear. “You’ll be good at this.”
