Attitude of Gratitude

Posted by Sara Levitsky on Tuesday, January 14, 2014 Under: Gratitude
According to The Wall Street Journal, research has shown tangible benefits of teaching kids to express gratitude.  Gratitude is a muscle and the more you practice it, the more grateful and positive you feel.  One study in The Journal of School Psychology showed that kids who regularly expressed gratitude had a more positive outlook on life generally.  Another, in The Journal of Happiness Studies, showed that kids who showed high levels of gratitude had "stronger GPA's, less depression and envy" than less grateful teens.  Gratitude is a skill best learned through modeling by parents/adults.
