Is your child grateful? Does he understand good fortune and truly appreciate gifts and favors? Or do you struggle to impress upon him how fortunate he is, and that he is not entitled to everything he wants?

For an upcoming story for Local Living, we want to talk to parents about how you teach your children about gratitude, particularly around the holidays.

E-mail me at and tell me about your children, and if they are appreciative. Why or why not? Are there things you have done to teach your child about gratitude?
