Gratitude at Home


On today’s audio blog, I share 7 easy ways to incorporate the virtue of gratitude in your children.  It is a tricky time of year, we are just past Thanksgiving yet on our way full force toward a season of ‘giving’ which often gets swamped with the feelings of ‘getting’.  How can we as parents help our children stay far away from that entitlement mentality?

Listen in as I share several ways that can help!

    I think that these are such great ideas and not really all that difficult to incorporate. Sadly, we get so caught up in our own little worlds and we forget that we do need to be grateful for all that we have been given. I really liked your idea of the gratitude book. I stepped out of the room for a minute so you may have discussed this idea. I thought about taking some pictures of the everyday things that we take for granted (full fridge, toys to play with, house, car, etc) and making a little picture book/memory book. That way throughout the year I can grab this book to read to my children and we can talk about these things.
    Thank you for all your ideas. I would really love to try the no electricity for a day! My husband may need a little more convincing though. 😉

  • Thanks for your comment. I love your book idea – especially with small children more visual aids are better, plus a keepsake item. Yes, even with teens it is hard for the no electricity idea – but I think we need to try again!
