Passing On the Gratitude Trait to Your Kids

Aleks Ceho Family Life

Gratitude. As kids our parents drill into us the need for manners, to say please and thank you. Some of us may have been taught to pray before bedtime, to thank God for our blessings of the day. While some of this is to ensure we are polite as we interact in the world, I think there is a beautiful side effect of these simple teachings – it helps our children to develop their ‘gratitude muscles’.
