Nowadays, quite a lot of children lack the consciousness of being grateful. They turn to take such things for granted, as parents supporting the teachers helping them, and waiters serving them. They are even mean to say "Thank you" to others. This happens not only to children but also to adults. This phenomenon has caused great attention from the whole society.
The following reasons can account for the lack of gratefulness consciousness. First of all, unsound family education plays an important role. Many parents turn to pay too much attention to children's academic performance, but ignore their value orientation. Moreover, schools also don't put enough time in moral education. Besides, nowadays, children get so much love that they are insensitive to others' care and help.
Considering the seriousness of the problem, it is high time to take effective measures to strengthen children’s consciousness of being grateful. First, parents should improve self-quality and influence children by their own behaviors. Second, Society and schools must increase input in moral education, and try to build the atmosphere of being grateful. Finally，children should learn to express gratefulness to people around us, just from saying "Thank you".
