Affirmations for Positive Mothering

Be kind to yourself today.
Affirmations by themselves are not all that need to do to enact change within yourself, but are a wonderful enhancement to positive self-development.
Positive parenting and feeling well and confident take conscious, daily effort. The conscious processing of perceived hurts and events helps clear out old habits, making way for new thoughts and ways of being.
