My Spirit FM 90.5 | Pass the Gratitude
Pass the Gratitude this November (and all year!)
Want to raise a joyful child? Teach gratitude. Wait, what? Joy can be learned and gratitude can be taught? Absolutely, and for the month of November Spirit FM is going to walk alongside our listeners as we bring ideas, service projects and articles to you and your family to help pass the gratitude this Thanksgiving. #PassTheGratitude
Teaching your kiddo(s) how to be grateful is more than just knowing when to say thanks. Research shows that this skill "has been found to increase happiness and social support in kids, both crucial for long-term well-being. It also seems to benefit adults." (Greater Good 10/12/2016) We can't promise that your children will ever "find" the joy in cleaning their bedroom, but we can promise that looking for these moments as a family will help to bring us all a little bit closer.
Here are some things to get you started. These are only suggestions, we would love to hear from you on how you are passing the gift of gratitude to your child(ren): Get Writing | Pray Always | Volunteering (Your Time, Talent and Treasure)
