What educators are saying

We loved this. We used it with the students each day and for the announcements, each morning. Exactly what I was looking for.

Use these 100+ positive self-talk cards to help improve self-esteem, confidence building, and encouraging positive thinking skills. Kids and young adults should read through the cards aloud or silently to help build an inner voice with positive self-talk. This can be a critical coping strategy for kids who struggle with low self-esteem, anger, worry, and more. Kids and young adults can go through their cards during times of stress, like when they are feeling angry or nervous.

Some examples of cards:

  • I get better every single day.
  • I matter.
  • It is enough to do my best.
  • I accept who I am.

What is Positive Self-Talk?

Positive self-talk is the voice in our heads that helps encourage us and pushes us through challenges. It is the inner voice that tells us things like, “You can do better next time”, “You are beautiful the way you are”, and “You are going to do great”. It can be a critical coping strategy for kids and young adults to help build confidence, work through challenges, and realize their own individual potentials. Anyone can teach positive thinking skills, including special educators, regular educators, parents, and more.
