Movies That Inspire Gratitude
Gratitude is an important character strength and life skill for kids' success and happiness, but it's more than just saying "thank you." All of the films on this list can teach kids the value of being aware of and thankful for the good things in their lives -- and of taking the time to return kindness. These motivational movies, ranging from A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving to It's a Wonderful Life, show the importance of being grateful by featuring characters who learn to overcome selfishness and truly appreciate what they have.
