Are you tired of your kids not appreciating what they have? Do they keep asking for more and more no matter how much you (and others give them)?
I think most parents know this feeling well! You aren't alone and your kids are totally messed up either!
You want the best for you kids and you want them to dream and achieve their goals, but at the same time you want them to be grateful for what they have as well.
You can show gratitude for what you have now and still want more in the future.
So how do you get your kids to be more grateful? It starts with you!
There was a study on 4th and 5th graders and showed that the biological child's disposition to gratitude was related to their mother's gratitude. It did not show a relation to the fathers! Crazy! This means that your disposition and practice of gratitude affects your children's where their father's has little to no bearing on it.
What this means is if you want your kids to show more gratitude. Start with yourself. What is one thing you can do today to be an example of gratitude for your kids?
