Step Help Your Kid Imagine the Recipients Feelings

One way to help your child understand the impact of gratitude is by having him imagine how the recipient of his kind actions feels. Suppose your child just sent a thank-you card to his aunt for the birthday present he received.

How will you feel when you read the card?"
