Teaching Children to be Thankful

From now until Thanksgiving, the LSS blog will be looking at ‘Thankfulness’ in each of the posts. Written by various programs, check back each day for a different perspective on why or what we celebrate.

“It is not happy people who are thankful. It is thankful people who are happy.” — author unknown

I find myself in awe each day at all that I have to be thankful for. If there is any truth to the quote above, that explains why I am so very happy! If I made a list of my hopes for my daughters, happiness would be toward the top. However, with the busy time that begins in November and zooms through to the new year, it is easy to get overwhelmed and forget about our many blessings. For children, that issue is compounded with the excitement and activity that comes with the holidays. Click below to read our blog post filled with tips for teaching children to be thankful.
