8 things you should say to your child every day

One thing’s for sure: there’s no easy way to bring up kids. However, there are a few things you should try to say to your children as often as you can. As well as forming a tighter bond between parent and child, these words are also very important for the young one’s self-confidence.

1. Perseverance

Here’s the first important thing to say to your child: “It’s okay, just try it again.” This helps the child understand that setbacks are an important part of the learning process.


It’s important to learn to say thank you at an early stage, as it has a long-term impact on how we communicate. That’s why you should say “Thank you for…” as often as you can, so that your child will being to say it too. They’ll also quickly learn to appreciate others.


“I’m so proud of you.” These are also words your child should hear often. Saying this to your young one gives them a nice feeling and helps their self-confidence.

4. Something special

“You are something special.” Saying these words to your child lets them know how much they mean to you.

5. Trust

If your child is taking on a new challenge, you should say something like: “I know you can do it.” If you show confidence in your child, they’re more likely to be confident in themselves.

6. Closeness 

“I’m so happy to have you.” Your child’s heart will skip a beat when they hear these words. It shows that your child is the center of your life.

7. Nice to see you

If you’ve been away from your child for some time, tell them: “I’ve really missed you.” That will show them that you’re thinking about them a lot when you’re not together.

8. Love 

It might be an old classic, but you simply can’t say “I love you” enough to your child. It works in all situations in life.

Simply try it yourself. There’s nothing negative about saying these words and they can have a positive long-term impact on your child.
