How to raise grateful kids


Happy November! With Thanksgiving is right around the corner, many of us are counting our blessings and pausing to appreciate what's really important in life.

But are we raising our kids to be thankful, as well?

Studies have shown that grateful kids are not only happier kids, but are also more likely to have higher grades, more friends and more life satisfaction than their more materialistic counterparts.

They're also less likely to abuse drugs and alcohol, have behavior problems at school or suffer from depression.

So it's no wonder parents are wondering how to help their children foster gratitude.
