Longtime rap icon Snoop Dogg surprised a generation of parents when he came out with his kids’ music project, Doggyland. His “Affirmation Song” took the parenting community and TikTok by storm, with grownups and kids alike elevating the song and its empowering lyrics to new levels.

With positive, repeat-after-me lyrics like “I am responsible,” “I get better every single day,” and “I’m surrounded by love,” Snoop Dogg and Doggyland’s “Affirmation Song” teaches kids about the power of words to improve to your mental health and outlook on life. And it helps that it’s also fun to dance to.

Let’s face it, most kids (and adults!) are not going to remember to recite a mantra or positive affirmations to themselves in the mirror every morning. But if you get a catchy song stuck in your head, you are likely to repeat the lyrics over and over — and that’s the magic of the “Affirmation Song.”
