Developing an Attitude of Gratitude in Kids

One of the most common complaints I hear from parents is that their kids are “ungrateful”. They say things like “he just doesn’t appreciate anything” and “she never says Thank You”. 

No one likes to be around a “Debbie Downer” or an ungrateful child or friend.

What is it that keeps us from recognizing something as GOOD and giving proper thanks for it? 

The thieves of gratitude are jealousy & comparison.

This episode takes a deeper dive into how jealousy and comparison shut the doors on the pathways in our brain that lead us to appreciate what we have already, to appreciate experiences we enjoy, and something someone did for us.

Listen for the 5 Practical Tips for developing gratitude in your kids, on a daily basis.
