Tips for Parents Teaching Children About Gratitude
“A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles.” – Unknown
Most adults can appreciate why gratitude is important, but many children think that gratitude is all about keeping on top of their “Ps & Qs”. Of course, in some respects, gratitude is about saying “thank you”, but it’s also so much more.
Gratitude is a feeling, or a state, rather than just a word or phrase. Of course, we can say “thanks” for things that we have in our lives, but to be truly grateful is to FEEL in your HEART rather than just speaking aloud.
Here’s a great article for parents of teens, on how to embrace and develop a gratitude practice: https://kidshealth.org/en/teens/gratitude.html
