One of the best ways to raise kids who are grateful and exhibit an attitude of thanksgiving is to be a great role model. Kids will be grateful when we show them how.
So why not use the month of November as a catalyst growing gratefulness in your family by creating a family “Thankful” board that you can display prominently in your home and be reminded of all of the thing that you have in your lives to be grateful for?
Start off with the small things (creamer for your coffee or fuzzy socks) and then move on to the big things (a new home, good friends, a job after unemployment, a good bill of health after illness); the objective is to simply take some time to be thankful.
