Have I mentioned, lately, how much I love the holidays? Though if I could have a say, I think Thanksgiving and Halloween should switch places. Perhaps then the children would be a little more grateful for the handfuls of free candy they receive from neighbors.
This month we will be practicing gratitude more than ever- daily gratitude "journals" (or one word-ers for the little ones) and lots of thank you role play.
Parents.com also has a great list of ideas to help make gratitude part of every day, not just a Thanksgiving day.
