10 Kid-Friendly Ways to Show Thankfulness

Thanksgiving is almost here and during this time of year we try to focus on recognizing the things we are grateful for. Did you know that gratitude doesn’t always come naturally to kids? It’s something that we, as parents, need to teach them — so doing this should be at the very top of our parenting to-do list. Children who express gratitude are often kinder, more appreciative, empathetic, and happier. Grateful children also have an understanding that other people have needs and they look outside themselves. They often are more polite, usually better behaved and generally more pleasant to be around. We all aspire to have kind, well-rounded and happy kids, and teaching them gratitude is one of the first steps!

18 Halloween Costume Ideas Inspired By Favorite Books

These days, many kids choose their Halloween costumes based on their favorite t.v. and movie characters. That means that this year, you’ll probably see a lot of Elsas from Frozen, minions from Despicable Me, turtles from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Pirate Jakes from Jake and the Neverland Pirates. So, why not instead turn your child to their favorite books for inspiration? Many of the most beloved children’s book characters have a whole series of books built around them. Therefore, one potential perk of dressing your child as one of these characters is that it might even give them a little motivational boost to try out a newer (or older) book in the series!  And–getting your child to read more is always a win-win situation, right?
