When something good happens, we have to both notice it and take 30 seconds to savor it in order to “plant” it in our implicit memory.   

Together with our children, we can appreciate the small things just by noticing the beauty in our everyday lives. We can help our children become noticers of the good, both in one another and our world by:

  • pausing to notice and “take in” the beauty of a sunset
  • appreciating a stranger holding the door open for you and your child
  • stopping to admire a vibrant tree in the park
  • listening to birds sing early in the morning

Gratitude is a skill. An attitude of gratitude is a positive way of looking at life.  Gratitude can increase our children’s happiness, teach them to be more empathetic and help them to be more thankful for everything they have.
