Thanksgiving is a time to stop, reflect, and count one’s many blessings. Friends, family, laughter, chocolate—quite a lot to be grateful for in life.
Yet for young children, especially the very young set who operate under the “all about me” philosophy, gratitude can be a challenging lesson to teach. Most know to offer thanks for a present but how do you teach thankfulness for things such as good health and love when they don’t come wrapped in shiny Disney paper?
We at Patch want to know: how do you teach your children about gratitude? Is it a yearlong lesson or one brought out especially for the holidays?
