Growing up, we might have been led to believe that gratitude simply meant saying “thank you” a lot. While that’s a great first step, it’s actually much more complex. This Andrea Hussong article outlines that gratitude has 4 parts:
* What we NOTICE in our lives for which we can be grateful
* How we THINK about why we have been given those things
* How we FEEL about the things we have been given
* What we DO to express appreciation in turn
The research-backed article also points out several questions parents can ask to foster gratitude as our children grow up. We hope you enjoy reading it!
