Raising Children to be Thankful


Learning begins from the cradle; a man learns from infancy and imbibes what he has learnt till adulthood. Some families teach saying a prayer before every meal; when children do this from the onset, it becomes a part of them. They grow up to say prayers before each and every meal unconsciously. The same goes for the season of thanksgiving; when this tradition is observed, children grow to pass it on to other generations and it becomes a culture.
Thanksgiving is very important; raising children to be thankful will not only help them individually but as a community that will learn from these young ones and the entire population will be thankful.
It starts with one child.
