Exploring Gratitude with Your Child

Letting others know that you’re appreciative of them can help you to develop and maintain strong relationships and improve overall life satisfaction.

 It is thought that this can help to boost academic achievement in children by helping them to feel connected to the world around them and be more confident. 

I have teamed up with a boy's school in London to share a few ways that you can explore gratitude with your child.

A Gratitude Jar

This is a jar that your child can use to reflect on all of the things that they have to be thankful for by writing them down and storing them in the jar. 

This will help to make exercising gratitude a part of their daily routine, allowing them to feel calmer, happier, and more content. 

This can be a visual reminder for your child during difficult times that they’re not alone and have so many loving people around them.


The Act of Saying Thank You 

The simplest way to demonstrate gratitude and thankfulness is through saying thank you. 

Getting your child in the habit of saying thank you will not only help them to reflect on the kind actions of others but will also help them to become polite and respectful.


Making Handmade Gifts

A handmade gift is a lovely way to give back to those that have shown support and care. 

Especially as they are handmade and from the heart. 

This is a fun and engaging way to teach your child about gratitude which doesn't need to involve many resources as gifts can include thank you cards and drawings.


Return the Favour

Lastly, you can teach your child about giving back and helping others out in times of need. 

This might be to offer a similar favour like lending stationery or helping a friend to find something that they have lost.
