And as moms, we all get to the point where we have to work smarter, not hard. Starting to be more thankful and practicing a grateful lifestyle only rewards us in return, and thus, the family. Don’t you want to feel good everyday and share that feeling with your kids? I know I do. ?
One way you can develop a more thankful lifestyle with your children is by simply making a gratitude jar. Take a jar, decorate/label it with your kids and talk about the intentions for this jar. Everyday, everyone will write on piece/s of paper (parents can scribe for the babies) what they are thankful for and place it in the jar. The goal can be to get the jar full by the end of the year. You can even make this a talking point during dinner every night and ‘bam!’ a new healthy routine has been established in the family, working towards more fruitfulness.
I’m going to start a gratitude jar this weekend with the kids. As we approach the holiday season, now is an excellent time of year to start refining our ability to be thankful.
What ways are you teaching your children to be thankful? I’d love to hear your best practices. Comment below or email me.
