7. Teach Action

Saying thank you is fine but sometimes, you need to show up and give thanks.

For example, you could call someone and say thanks instead of sending an e-mail or a text.

You could also write a thank-you note and send it to that individual that helped you or you could even give them a thank-you basket.

Saying β€œplease” and β€œthank you” is not only good manners, it’s also a way to teach your kids to be kind and to appreciate the things and the opportunities they have.

Do you know any other tips on how to raise grateful children in such a materialistic world?
