Christine Carter on Teaching Kids GratitudeBy Jason Marsh | November 24, 2010 | 0 comments
A Q&A with our parenting expert.
UC Berkeley’s Media Relations department this week is featuring an interview it conducted with Christine Carter in anticipation of Thanksgiving, offering parents some tips on how to help kids practice gratitude.
Christine briefly explains why gratitude is a skill kids should learn and how parents can approach gratitude with their kids—even (or especially) teenagers. She elaborates on that last point in her Raising Happiness post this week.
That’s one of several recent Greater Good pieces on gratitude before Thanksgiving, including gratitude expert Robert Emmons’ 10 tips for becoming more grateful and his research-based argument for why gratitude is so important.
