We all know the benefits of seeing the positive in life. Teaching our kids the benefits of gratitude does a lot more than you would think. In general, people who take the time to appreciate things in their lives are more energetic, are able to sleep better, are more compassionate and kind to others and even have improved immune systems.An “attitude of gratitude” seriously improves your satisfaction with life. Kids, particularly teens, often get wrapped up in their lives, which may be filled with drama and stress. As parents, we can help them to see things differently simply by finding ways to encourage them to see what happy things they actually have in their lives, including the people that enhance their lives.
