Teaching your child to express gratitude at home is a goal as parents we strive towards. Here’s a few simple simple for teaching gratitude in your home with kids.
Do you ever find yourself thinking about what’s in your home? I find myself running around each day trying to keep things organized. I’m trying to keep things clean but there are some times when I feel frustrated that things just don’t stay where I put them. Then I catch myself thinking what a blessing it is to have things to worry about and to keep clean and to be home with my kids during the day.
Teaching Gratitude at Home
I think sometimes I have to remind myself that although we want to instill in our children organization, order and respect of our things, sometimes it’s okay to get a little messy and have fun. If that load didn’t get done or dishwasher unloaded because we were spending time together playing and laughing it’s ok at times, they world still goes on.
I am so thankful for this opportunity I have to spend with my children!
