Gratitude: Giving, Getting and What Helps Children Feel Gratitude

How we can inspire feelings of gratitude rather than trying to demand it from our children?

What are you grateful for now? That’s the question Abigail poses to Elle this episode.

We’ll be talking about how we feel about being thankful during the thankful season, what happens if it feels difficult, and how we can inspire gratitude rather than demand it from our children?

Feelings about gratitude are often triggered around the holidays. In this episode, Abigail and Elle share ideas for:

  • Promoting true gratitude in the family
  • Making space to see and hear your child as they are and monitor your connection
  • How to let children offload trusting they will go back to center
