About Making Grateful Kids

This blog is based on the Making Grateful Kids book (March 2014). Using research in positive psychology and on gratitude, Froh and Bono provide a practical view of gratitude as a life skill and give parents, teachers, pastors, or anyone who works with youth ideas and strategies for boosting gratitude in children and adolescents. When kids and young adults practice gratefulness for the good things and people in their lives good things happen. People can come together in special ways to make the world better.
