Kids Activities: Raising Thankful Kids
Doing kids activities is helpful when teaching kids to be thankful in everyday life. Here at www.treasureboxkids.com we know that while we strive to make the outside look good on your child there is another aspect to raising kids that is so important.
One important factor that we often overlook is being grateful for what we have. Our example to our kids is more important than anything we say or do. If we model our gratitude to them and have frequent family activities, they will be grateful right back. Thanking our children and letting them know how the little things they do mean a lot will give them added self-esteem as well as encourage them to be more giving and grateful.
New York psychologist Michael Schulman PhD author of the book Bringing Up A Moral Child had a wonderful suggestion for raising thankful kids. Make a chart listing all the things that each family member did during the day with the needs of someone else in mind. This is a graphic illustration of how you are raising thankful kids.
Doing kids projects and chores beginning when they are young is also a beneficial way of raising thankful kids. It is especially helpful if at time you do the chore with them. All of us can relate to making the job easier and give them a positive attitude when we have some company.
