Tuesday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte author and speaker, Laura Petherbridge will offer some tips for co-parenting during the holidays.
Gratitude is not something that is an innate human trait, and because we are all born selfish, it is something that is both caught and taught. As God designed it, babies spend all of their time having their needs met. As children get older they are taught to be more and more self-sufficient. If we are not spending time training our children to have a grateful heart however, they will keep that selfish attitude. Tuesday join Mornings with Eric and Brigitte as Dr. Bob Barnes shares how Thanksgiving gives us a wonderful opportunity for training our children to have a grateful heart.
