Thanksgiving – Giving Thanks and Spending Quality Time Around the Table
As Thanksgiving Day quickly approaches and we begin to think about preparations for the big day, let’s also take some time for our families and reflect on our life’s good fortune.
Whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle, know that you have the ability to make an impact on the lives of the children in your family. Being a good role model and mentor can provide a lifetime of memories and knowledge for them by just knowing that you are there for them every step of the way.
While you are sitting around the table this Thanksgiving enjoying quality time with your family, take a moment to reflect and be thankful to your children for:
• Making good choices about friends
• Abiding by the house rules
• Turning down drugs and alcohol
• Having a positive relationship with other siblings
• Participating in a healthy hobby or school activity
• Being who they are!
And while you’re at it, don’t forget to thank yourself for setting the foundation and guiding your kids to make smart life decisions!
Happy Thanksgiving from the team at DrugFreeAZKids.org!
