December is here and with that comes a lot of celebrating with your typically unhealthy foods! We know there are so many temptations this time of year and while it’s easy to just chalk it up to, “it’s the holidays, and I will get back on track in the new year,” it’s not the best mindset to have. Also, it’s important to remember that kids are easily influenced and love modeling behavior of adults, so this is a great opportunity to teach kids to eat healthy portions.

Once you start showing gratitude towards others and realizing that something as simple as a “thank you,” can make someone’s day, it makes you want to continue to do nice things. Oftentimes, so many actions go unnoticed and under-appreciated. It’s important to teach kids from a young age to be grateful and appreciative of things that people do for them. It seems that kids have lofty expectations and don’t always appreciate everything that they have.
This is a great time of year to have a conversation about gratitude and how being kind to others can feel good! Explain the simple things that can be done to show appreciation.
