Parents can make a conscious effort to set aside uninterrupted time to talk with their children. It may be at mealtime, drive time, bath or bedtime. Letting our children know what we are grateful for instills love and understanding. In doing so, we encourage our children to communicate the same.
"Consistency and longevity are the key to promoting gratitude."
Contributing to family chores
is also a strategy to teach our children to be grateful.
Children will begin to understand that everyone in the family has a responsibility to help one another.
