My uncle was on a flight from Paris to New York in 1997. When he took his seat in the aircraft a French lady with her three or four year old daughter came and sat on the seat next to his. As there are only three seats, the mother sat on one, the daughter next to my uncle’s.

After a while an airhostess served food. The French lady taking the tray from the air hostess began feeding her daughter and at the same time partaking from it herself.  She put a morsel in her daughter’s mouth and after she had eaten it, the lady said, ‘Say thank you,’ she then put another spoonful of rice and made her say, ‘thank you’ again. According to my uncle the lady made her daughter say the word ‘Thank you’ thirty six 36 times during the course of the meal.

He observed this with amazement that this habit of showing gratitude would surely become part of her daughter’s character and she will be thankful to everyone for the rest of her life.

Moral; we should teach our children these good habits from childhood to be grateful for anything they are blessed with
