I used this Fishful Thinking Inspire an Attitude of Gratitude activity today.
I used this today with my children.
I asked my 5 year old, "How did you help someone today?" He said he helped grab his little brother so he didn't get hurt when he was climbing something he wasn't suppose to. I asked my 4 year old the same question. He couldn't think of anything so my 5 year old helped him. They came up with my 4 year old getting out of the 17 months old way so he could get up.
I then told both of them I was happy they had been so helpful and it made me feel very good inside to see them helping others so much. The both were beaming with a smile. It is amazing how much a little prasie will go. I told them I was Thankful they were by boys and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Give it a try today and let me know how it went!
As parents, we lead by example.
Leading by example is a great way to help make expressing gratitude a part of your family's daily life. Whenever you find yourself feeling grateful—share it!
