There is no perfect age to start teaching a child the value of gratitude in life. Studies have suggested that children who are grateful tend to be more satisfied and happy with their life and do better.
Researchers suggested parents to ask their children who and what they are grateful for. This would instill in them the feeling of thankfulness and also teach them the art of building positive and happy relationships. One way to do this is by setting their own selves as an example. When children see their parents being grateful for even the smallest things, they also try to be the same.
Researchers say that gratitude is the perfect answer to the problem of negative consumerism that is present in students these days. Being grateful will help them in knowing the value of things in life.
