Fostering an Attitude of Gratitude Through Family Meetings

An attitude of gratitude does not come naturally. It must be learned. Regular practice and sharing will help all family members develop an attitude of gratitude.

Family Meeting Gratitude Activity: (from the Family Meeting Album)

1. At the end of each family meeting, pass out a blank "Gratitude Page." Encourage family members to put the page in a place where they can access it easily and write down the things for which they are grateful.

2. Allow time during family meetings (or meals) for people to share the things for which they are grateful.

3. During each family meeting, collect the Gratitude Pages, and place them in the family meeting binder.
