Learned Gratitude


As we gather with family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, we would do well to think about how to make each day one of thanksgiving. In the midst of our busy lives – and especially in a culture that often leads our kids to say, “Give me, give me!” – how can we instill in our children a spirit of gratitude for all things, large and small?

Here are the practical tips for raising thankful kids that Marti shared with KARE 11 News at 11‘s Diana Pierce:

1) Set an example of thankfulness
2) Establish a daily “thanksgiving ritual”
3) Avoid over-indulging your children
4) Engage your children in contributing, in the family and beyond
