Redirect Negative Self-Talk to Renew Her Mind

Do you catch your daughter saying negative things about herself? Maybe she uses phrases like, “I’ll never get that right,” or “I’m always messing up!” These words are negative self-talk, and they point to issues like low self-worth.

The words that we speak and think about ourselves are powerful and are like seeds that plant deeply in our hearts. Proverbs says, “The soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.”

For your girl to adopt positive self-talk, it starts first with renewing her mind. What does God say and think about her? It also starts with how you, as her parent, model positive self-talk. Consistently redirect her negative self-talk to God’s words … he says she is worthy and loved.
