Character Notes: Raising a Grateful Child

Sweet summertime!  ‘Tis the season to which many teachers – and hopefully many parents - look forward!  With beautiful weather come many children’s parties and family get-togethers - great opportunities to teach children about saying “thank you” and being grateful.

To teach a child to be grateful and to strive to find the good in each situation is to teach him a treasured lifelong skill. For children, learning how to say “thank you” and how to express gratitude will create many positive experiences, and it will impact the way they view life and face the many challenges that come their way.  Learning to be grateful for the positive things, even when there are numerous negatives in the same scenario, is a wonderful quality to instill in our children.
