Instilling gratitude is a sometimes daunting parental responsibility. Don't get me wrong, there are so many blessings for which to give thanks, but modeling a grateful heart is easier said than done. "Thank you" often rolls off the tongue....
There are 86,400 seconds every day. As a parent, you cannot be present for each of them. One app, though, challenges you to record one second of your child(ren) each day for a year. I love seeing my friends...
