Gratitude Club

All too often, we humans search for happiness and contentment outside of ourselves. We turn to new things, people, and places to fill what can feel like an insatiable void. Ever purchased your child something new only for it to be loved for hours or days before the next new thing is so desperately wanted? A gratitude practice is an effective, research-supported way to inspire well-rounded, resilient, and content kids. Gratitude is the key to showing us happiness, and contentment is an inside job!
