The Importance of Saying Thank You
There is a good reason to encourage kids to write thank yous! In fact, the science behind it is very compelling. Jeffrey Froh, an assistant professor of psychology at Hofstra University, in Hempstead, New York says, “Grateful kids tend to be much more satisfied with their lives, and they do better in school and are less materialistic, less depressed, and less envious. Their relationships are much stronger and more supportive.” In one study, grateful kids even reported fewer physical symptoms, like headaches, stomachaches, and fevers. WOW!
I love these words of wisdom, “Gratitude turns what we have into enough.” Oprah Winfrey says it well, “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.
Great lessons for us and our children!
