Teaching Your Kids to Be Thankful—One Woman’s Answer to Prayer That Changed Everything

Teaching your kids to be thankful may just be a prayer away…

The first time I remember making it a heart-goal to teach our children appreciation began this way …

At our son’s 6th birthday party, during the gift opening portion:

Son: (wildly tearing at the paper) What is it? Oh it’s a battleship. My Grammy already got me this.

Then, he opened the next gift.

Son: (pulling off the bow and paper, tossing the card aside, unread): A Nerf gun! My Grammy got me one of these just last week.
