Children emulate our behavior: the way we sit, talk and walk. We provide the blueprint for what to say and what to do and in what contexts.
It’s also important to realise that virtues are caught, not taught. Therefore we should always strive to model correct behavior for children. Before we try to teach gratitude, we should embody it ourselves.
Here’s a great video by the School of Life to provide some food for thought.
Take a moment to look around (and within) you: what little things are you grateful for at this very moment?
