Gratitude: 5 Ways to Teach Kids Thankfulness This Holiday Season! by Jill Ceder, LMSW, JD
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to show your children the importance of giving thanks and appreciation to the village that helps raise them. Here are five ways to teach thankfulness!
- Personalized notes or pictures.
- Homemade treats
- Thank-you crafts such as a thank-you tree, thankful turkey hands or thankful place cards
- Modeling gratitude daily: Remember to thank the people you and your children encounter each day, such as crossing guards, mailmen and store clerks
Your child is watching what you do and say, so modeling gratitude for your child will have a big impact!
