Counselor's Corner

In honor of Thanksgiving, here's some advice from Parents magazine about how to teach your kids the importance of having a grateful heart.

1. Work gratitude into your daily conversation.

2. Have your kids help around the house and they will be more appreciative of all the work you put in.

3. Have your kids help you with a goodwill gesture, such as taking food to someone who's sick.

4. Encourage your kids to be generous toward others.

5. Help your kids write thank you notes when they receive a gift.

6. Avoid spoiling your kids and learn to say NO so that they learn to be grateful for what they do have. 7. Be patient as your kids learn how to have an attitude of gratitude.
