How are gratitude and the environment connected to Raising Great Kids? I Don’t Get It.
In other cultures, such as Japanese and Native American, reverence for the earth and gratitude are fundamental to the culture and are therefore intertwined. Raising Happy Grateful Kids introduces this compatibility between gratitude and environmental concern to our culture to help parents develop children who will become grateful and respectful citizens of our earth. At Gratitude Leads helping children become as grateful for nature, friends and family as they are for parties and presents is part of our mission.
Is there a Parenting Group Guide available so I can host a parenting group at home?
A parenting group guide book is being developed and will be available soon. One of the best ways to find support and encouragement as a parent is to start or join a parenting study group. Sharing ideas, clarifying your own perspective and having fun together are all highly rewarding.
Things are going great why would I sign up for this course?
Parenting is a journey and there is always something more to learn even when your relationship with your kids is great.
