    Remind them of what we're gone through over the years, homeless, death, broke, what we had to live without and what we have now.

    When my kids were young I started using this method when they were grumpy or taking things for granted. It has become the "Stop and Give Me 5" game now. I would ask them to stop and name five things they love. As they think about it, their thoughts turn towards love and gratitude.
    I wrote more about this on my hub "Helping Kids Out Of A Bad Mood", which can be found at http://sparklechi.hubpages.com/hub/Raise-The-Vibration
    I believe this is an easy strategy that can be used as much with adults as with children!

      What an awesome idea!  My husband and I have recently started doing this with each other whenever we get stressed or worried.
