Today’s culture of entitlement and privilege erodes our natural inclinations towards gratitude. This webinar will provide information on many benefits of gratitude, and offer direct strategies to inculcate the attitude of gratitude in families and schools. The developmental challenges across childhood, pre-teen, and adolescent years will be carefully considered.
