Gratitude

I had thought that I would teach my son this value through charity organizations and volunteering, which I'll still do. BUt this is a great example of how making you kids involved helps.

    I didn't take the time to read the article but I agree it's important to teach our children gratitude. I think it's a life long process though because even as adults there are times we can show ingratitude depending on our life at any given moment.

    I had my first child in April 2013, just before our one year anniversary. Riley has been an absolute joy and I love every minute of being mom. But I am the first among my friends to have a child, so there isn't always an easy place to go for advice.
