Five Ways to Raise a Grateful Child, by Andrea Hussong is about the importance of gratitude in our children. It suggested ways to increase gratitude in our children. Here are the five major points that include the NOTICE-THINK-FEEL-DO model:
1) Model thankfulness – When we model gratitude our children witness first hand either through our actions or words. They are more likely to show gratitude in their own experiences.
2) Embed it – Think about the environment you create for your children. “In turn, children who are involved in more activities selected by parents to foster gratitude more frequently display gratitude.”
3) Talk about it when it is there – Discuss with your children when they show gratitude. Make it a teaching moment.
4) Talk about it when it is not there – Discuss with your children when they do not show gratitude. Listen to your child about the situation and ways to handle it differently.
5) Repeat it often - Practice and reflect on the moments where we can show gratitude.
The article ends with the suggestion of starting off slowing and working on one thing at a time. This article can be found at:
