Being intentional about teaching your child to be grateful is necessary. I always thought it was super hard to “teach” a child character. If we leaned towards spoiling our child while they were young, then training them in the way they should go later on is hard. Learning academics seems much easier than teaching a child how to respond correctly. We can’t memorize being grateful for things. This has to be something we are trained in. These 7 tips can help.
