Gratitude Practice

We practiced a tradition with our children a few years back that included a mason jar and scraps of paper. Each day, we would remind them to write down something they were grateful for and put it in the jar. At the end of the month, we'd empty out the jar and read all of the things were wrote.

No mention was silly or too small to appreciate. The gesture and the activity done together as a family was heartwarming. This exercise helped us teach our children about the importance of taking time to practice gratitude daily. It also taught them the power of reflection.

It's easy to go through our daily lives and do all the things we have to do and check off the list the tasks that need our attention. But it's so important, especially for kids, to take a step back and look at what we have accomplished and talk about what we have experienced, both good and bad.

An exercise like this is also a beautiful way to practice sharing feelings and learning how to express love and admiration for those around you.
