Our kids do many thoughtful deeds throughout the day, but we often overlook them.Well, don't! Hearing you verbalize gratitude is one of the easiest ways to boost kids' grateful hearts as well as walk and talk gratitude. Just be sure to tell your kids what they did that you appreciate. Not only will they be more likely to repeat their kind action, but they will copy your example and send "appreciation messages" to others deserving their thanks.
"Kevin, thanks for remembering to take out the trash. I appreciate your helpfulness." "Thanks for giving me a moment by myself,Yulrika. I had a really hard day at work, and I appreciate your thought-fulness."
