  1. I’ve always been taught that “you are born on this earth with a purpose to collect blessings “. I’m trying my bit to pass that to my daughter. Being grateful is one of the many values that will fetch you blessings.

  2. I so agree with all your points. It gives immense joy when someone shows gratitude to the one thing that you did to them. Returning the favor back to someone is what your duty should be..

  3. Ts important to impart these life lessons to kids and gratitude tops the list. I hope and i try to teach my lo about gratitude

  4. These are some really important values for everyone. This must be taught to the kids from the beginning.
    The fact that happiness lies within is really important for everyone to understand……

  5. Hi Urvashi, nice little ways to build the practice of gratitude in kids. You have captured it really well in the post. anyone could start with any of the pointers mentioned by you and see the difference in a child’s outlook to life. You have mentioned it right that the best time to start teaching them gratitude is when they are young and “tabula rasa”. Enjoyed reading your post 🙂
