Children´s Fitness Programs Improve Confidence

Fitness for kids and programs that help children stay active, not only help them stay healthy but they help children build confidence and other important skills. At Stretch and Grow Salem, we know how essential it is that children build confidence at an early age, and what an impactful difference it makes as they grow up. For that reason, today we want to share a few encouraging phrases that you can say to your child to help them build confidence and improve their self-esteem.

Encouragement Makes a Difference

Saying words of encouragement strengthens a child's ability to succeed at any given task. Studies have shown that giving children clear and concise instructions helps them carry out a task sufficiently but encouraging them while they go about fulfilling that task renders much better results both in that moment and in future tasks. Exercise, games, and other physical activities are great opportunities to repeat encouraging phrases and cheer on the efforts of children.

10 Encouraging Phrases to Say to Your Child

  • What an excellent job.
  • I know you can do it.
  • That was an awesome effort!
  • I'm so proud of you for trying.
  • Way to go!
  • Never give up.
  • Give me five, you worked really hard!
  • You are very capable.
  • Wow! I noticed it wasn't easy and you still stuck with it.
  • I have faith in you.
