I Teach My Children to be Thankful!

Karate Bradley Thakful Children, Tri-Star Martial Arts Academy Bradley & New LenoxIs that statement true? Do you. If not don’t worry… The below affirmation just might be your answer. Just read this 3 times a day for the next 21 days and see what a difference it makes!
I lead my children by example. Any behavior I want my children to exhibit, I must master first. I teach my children to be grateful by expressing my own gratitude before them.
No matter how small the deed, I always give thanks when someone does something for me. I understand that when others serve me or buy things for me, it is only out of the generosity in their hearts, not out of obligation.
I appreciate others because I am humble enough to accept that I am not entitled to their kindness. I guard my children from that sense of entitlement so they may be free to be thankful.
I am selective in the number of material things I give my children. I inspire them to appreciate the things they already have. Often having too much limits a person’s ability to be grateful.
I model a long-term sense of appreciation for my children. I demonstrate thankfulness for my own possessions by taking care of the things I have.
Today, I choose to foster a genuine sense of gratitude in the hearts of my children that goes beyond a simple habit of being polite. I teach my children to use their manners to give thanks and have a deep appreciation for others.
Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. Do I demonstrate gratitude in the way I care for my possessions?
  2. How can I foster a deep sense of gratitude in my children beyond simply giving thanks?
  3. Why is it best to limit the amount of things I buy for my children?
