How to Teach Your Child Appreciation

While some aspects of thankfulness come along with developmental milestones, there are things that we can do to help our kids better understand and express appreciation–and it’s beneficial for everyone!

Additionally, science shows that having an attitude of gratitude actually increases our body’s ability to recover from sickness and trauma, improves our physical health and mental wellbeing overall, supports self-esteem, enhances empathy, encourages compassion, improves sleep, and (as you can imagine), improves our relationships with other people!

Below are some practical ways to help you learn how to teach your child appreciation.

Model Behavior

Work on being grateful for what you have right now, and that will overflow on to your kids.

When interacting with them, share frequently and generously and say please and thank you so that good manners are “what we do” and gratitude is “who we are,” not just what we say we do or what we tell our kids to do.

Also, include your kids when writing thank you cards for Christmas or birthday gifts, or making a quick phone call to thank a loved one for something they did.
