What Should I Write in a Card of Encouragement to a Kid?

Updated on February 23, 2012

Kids need encouragement in life! Why not consider dropping a note to them just letting them know how much they are loved and cared about? We assume they know, but life can be hard and so busy for a child.

Your extra words of kindness might mean more than you can know. People never regret sending love and support and caring thoughts to a child. They do often regret not sending more. Then the next thing you know they are all grown up!

No matter what stage of life, sending that kid in your life a card or note or email to let them know how much they mean to you. Let them know they are loved. They need to hear it too. Perhaps they are going through an extra hard month or week in school, and need encouragement to keep on going, to know they can do it! Send that note to them.

My hope is that you find something here to use, or to use the ideas below as a springboard of what to write. Thank you for being an encouragement to others! This world needs more people like you.

Something neat that I have come to love in the card stores are those blank cards. They have some neat picture or design on the outside but nothing on the inside. These are perfect to have on hand for kids, even to have for their friends birthdays, etc. You personalize a note, as needed for those tough days or days you just want to give them an extra boost. This would be true also, for those talented people that enjoy making cards. Use them for kids too!

Ideas of what to Write in a note or Card to a Kid

Never ever forget how much you are loved! Have a great day.

There is something that you need to know - You can do all that you think you can do! Go for it!

Smile, someone loves you!

Sending a little note to let you know I care about you and love you very much.

I have always told you to just try your best, and look at you now! Great job.

So excited for you!

Way to go! You outdid yourself!

I have faith in you. You can do it.

You can do it. Just give it your best shot.

No matter what, I am always here for you, and I will always love you.

Excellent! Who knew? Well wait a minute, I did actually!

      Hello Tirelesstraveler, thank you very much. I am so sorry to hear about your friend's father going on hospice care. My family and I have just been through all of that this last year with my father. Hospice, as an organization and the support they give, have been very wonderful to my family twice now.

      I think its wonderful what you said about him being kind and patient with kids. What you share here goes to show what a difference our actions and words can make with others. How neat that people remember him being kind and patient and how that impacted you all. :) I love that.

      Thanks for your kind words and visit to my hub. I really appreciate it.

      Wonderful hub oceansnsunset. My best friends father has just gone on hospice care. As I spend the weekend with them different people visit and recount the stories of what he did with them when they were kids. He doesn't remember doing anything special, but many of us are great because he was kind and patient. What an adult says makes a huge difference to a child. Your templates are so very good and easy to follow.

      Hello Emimemo, that is so true. They are encouraged to make others cards, but we so often do not return the favor! They would probably love to get a card, or get one in the mail. The words may not even seem to be making such impact, but I think that they do.

      Kids so often hear negative things, and over time they wonder if people notice the good that they do. Sending a note or card is the perfect way to let them know you notice what they are doing good. Or at least, it lets them know how much you love them. They need that.

      Kids make a lot of cards for family in school. But I guess we (adult) do not make cards by ourselves for them.
