Raising a Thankful Kid
 
Remind your family what they have to be thankful for:
A great country with men and woman keeping up safe every day.
Family
Friends
Health
 
Parents, set a good example:
Have your kids take part in charitable activities. 
Let younger kids help gather items for donating or shopping for food drive.
Let teens choose their charity and engage how they want: donate items they gather/shop for and deliver, volunteer time
 
Put things in perspective for kids:  
– Talk about need in the community/ country/ world.  At times hard to see beyond your front porch. 
– Start small with kids
Teaching younger kids to share
Getting along with sibs
 
Having kids take stock in these ideas will become part of their value system as they grow older and create empathy, sympathy, generosity-when they grow up will continue to teach these value to their kids.
