Gratitude: A Lifestyle Worth Developing

Authors

  • Barbara Lancaster

Abstract

According to Webster (1999), gratitude is the state of being grateful, thankful, a readiness to show appreciation, and a disposition to return kindness. Practicing an attitude of gratitude is a habit vital, not only to an individual, but as well to families and society as a whole. As we observe our current state in society, some believe it appears attitudes of entitlement, resentment, and victimhood are evident. The purpose for this current discussion is to explore the reasons and the benefits for being grateful and furthermore, to consider ways to cultivate a habit of gratefulness in families and thus, influence our children.
