I am praying that my children will become more grateful
I don’t believe you can teach children gratitude in America. My children are obedient and respectful, but they are not grateful. This is why I am taking them to Guyana to teach them gratitude. I don’t believe that I can teach them or they can learn gratitude living in America.
In America, they have too many things; they are not lacking anything. They have too many clothes and toys so they destroy it. They have too much food which makes them waste it. They have never missed a meal. They don’t know what it is like to go to bed or school hungry. They never had to walk six miles to school. They never had to sleep on a cold wooden or concrete floor. I believe this is why they are spoiled and unthankful.
I want my children to have a better life than I had, but I also want them to be thankful for that better life.
I see the children in Guyana who have much less and are much more thankful. By exposing my children to the Guyanese children, I am praying that my children will become more grateful.
