What's the best way to help my kid appreciate receiving gifts?
Teaching gratitude to children is essential, not just for graciously receiving gifts but because children who are grateful are also more optimistic, do better in school, and are more socially integrated. Modeling gracious gift receiving is a key for teaching your children how to accept presents with gratitude and respect. I love this idea by a mom called "The Present Game" to teach young kids how to give and receive well. Practice and making the process fun can go a long way to improving behavior and manners!Check Out Our Related Content:
