I will be sharing with you 33 powerful phrases your child needs to hear from you. Children go through a lot on a daily and need their parent’s encouragement. At the end of a long day filled with many trials, they need to know that their parents are there. That they aren’t alone. As parents, you may not always know what to say to your child.

There are so many things that you could say to your child. You do not want to say anything that will make them feel like they’re being toyed with or that you’re not being real with them. You wish you could shield your child from all the bad stuff, I know. No parent wants their children to go through things that hurt them in so many ways. The truth of the matter is, that’s life. It is a part of their growing up and becoming mature adults.

You can protect your children from a lot but not everything. So what are you supposed to do? Be there when they need you, tell them things that will help them to keep fighting and keep striving because failure should never be an option. These encouraging words will help your child build healthy self-esteem and confidence because if no one else believes in them, at least they have parents who do.
