Members of the Oyster Bay-East Norwich School district are feeling full of gratitude these days. The inspiration to think, feel and act with more gratitude stems from last month’s Special Education Parent Teacher Association (SEPTA) meeting in which Jeffrey J. Froh, PsyD presented his research findings in the field of gratitude.
SEPTA President and special education teacher Kevin McCarthy says, “Dr. Froh’s presentation on his newest book, Making Grateful Kids: The Science of Building Character, was a reaffirmation of how important being grateful as individuals can be. Dr. Froh was able to show, through his research, that the power of being grateful, and more importantly, teaching your children how to be grateful, can lead to a more positive, productive and fulfilling life. It was a wonderful topic that was well received by over 125 attendees. Our Special Education Parent Teacher Association was proud to present the program.”
