Being involved in the has allowed them to stop and think about ways to reconnect as a whole through the simple step of being grateful and how a little bit of gratitude can change a persons day. ~ Jan, Mother
About the 
"HOME GROWN GRATITUDE" 
Family Membership
"Home Grown Gratitude" is a fun approach to embedding a deep culture of gratitude into the busiest of family homes. 

You may have heard words such as gratitude, empathy, kindness, positive reflection, mindfulness, optimism, service, compassion, resilience happiness and joy. 

But...you maybe be thinking how on earth do I teach these virtues/character strengths/habits to my children? 

Our extensive research and planning has enabled us to serve you with a highly effective, fun, easy to use approach.

Hang on! 

This isn't just for my children. How could my life be different if I developed and practiced habits such as gratitude, kindness, empathy, compassion and service? 
Could I:
    •   be less depressed and anxious
    •  have better relationships
    •  be more more productive and creative
    •  have better physical health
    •  be more likely to be the first person to help others 
    •  cope better with stress and trauma
    •  be more resilient
    •  be friendlier and have solid social support
    The research by the one of the founders and leaders of Positive Psychology Professor Martin Seligman suggests you can impact your life your life in the above ways. When I explained to Martin Seligman my plan for Growing With Gratitude he responded by saying; "it is a worthy endeavour".

    Most importantly what if your child developed habits of gratitude, empathy, kindness, positive reflection, mindfulness, optimism and service? The foundation of resilience and happiness. You will give your child the best chance to thrive in this crazy world.

    In this crazy world who is not busy? 

    Our program is designed for busy families. We use a habit forming approach that focuses on short 2 - 20 minute daily activities with the odd family challenge sprinkled in. 

    My daughter and I have an intervention order against my ex-husband. Home Grown Gratitude couldn't have been more perfect timing. Doing the Habits of Happiness activities cheer us up. Great for both of us really.

    I can't believe the change in my son. He has started to do things around the house without being told and he shows greater appreciation by using a lot more thank you's!

    Do You Want To Learn How To Embed A Deep Culture Of Gratitude Into Your Home?
    Hey there!

    Like you, I want to see your children thrive and flourish in this crazy world. While working as a primary school physical education teacher in my early 30s I stumbled across a couple of books by thought leaders and scientists who were studying positive psychology and its impact on happiness, health and lifestyle.

    The more I read the more my interest in this area grew, not just because it tied into my own goals of improving the wellbeing and health of young children, but because the ideas resonated with my own journey and personal challenges at the time.

    Over the next few years I continued to read and research as much as I could. I attended conferences on the topic, read books by popular authors and psychologists such as Martin Seligman, Barbara Frederickson, Sonja Lyubomirsky, and Shawn Achor among others, and adopted the best of their advice into my own daily life.

    And after awhile I realised that all the research and studies were really saying the same thing: that contrary to our society’s long-held belief that ‘success’ is the doorway to happiness, gratitude and acceptance are the real indicators of future health, happiness and success in life.

    It sounds really basic, but developing an understanding of this principle changed my life in powerful and profound ways and I began experiencing myself the positive impact that this simple philosophy has both physically and mentally.

    Then one day while running on the treadmill I had a light-bulb moment – if learning these simple skills and techniques could have such a positive effect on my life at 34, what if I had been taught them when I was much younger? Like at school and in my home? What would my life have been like if I had these skills right from the start? And what would the lives of families be like if I shared these insights with them?

    There seemed no reason to me that the simple techniques used by adults to retrain their brains and change their beliefs couldn’t be taught to children, giving them an advantage and therefore setting them up for a lifetime of resilience, happiness and success.

                                                                                                                            And so Growing with Gratitude was born!

    Through the Growing With Gratitude Program we empower hundreds of thousands of children, parents, families and teachers quickly and simply with the skills that taught me years to learn. And by nurturing these skills in young children I’m hoping we can create a new generation of grateful, happy, kind, mindful, empathetic, optimistic and resilient people who will stamp their presence on the world and go on to make even greater positive change themselves.

    So thank you for being a part of the Family Gratitude Revolution. I hope you enjoy the journey.

    I am a huge fan of the Growing with Gratitude concept, and the team running it. The world, my generation included, seriously lacks the understanding of the powerful impact a simple task as being grateful can have. To stop everyday and be thankful for all the things we have, and do for each other, puts us all in a better place and brings great strength to our relationships, personal, & professional"
