Vaccines
#1. Vaccines
Vaccines are one of medicine's greatest discoveries, saving an estimated 42,000 lives in the U.S. each year. We are fortunate to live in a country that makes vaccinations available. Here are 14 diseases you almost forgot about THANKS TO VACCINES! 
Also on our list:
#2. Kindness. Now more than ever, it's important to recognize kindness. Model it; children learn by watching. Be thankful when others show you that same respect.
#3. Our Village"It takes a village to raise a child." Hooray for grandparents, neighbors, teachers, friends, and others who touch your life directly or indirectly.
#4. Time to Play! Put down your smartphone. Play with your children. Be thankful for this magical age where fun and games help children thrive. 
#5. Our Differences. We live in a melting pot. Teach your children to honor those differences and celebrate the ways that make our country unique and awesome! 
#6. Our Children's Friends. They come into their lives for reason. Be grateful for the lessons each relationship brings, espeically about helping them feel secure outside the family. 
#7. Books. A really great book has the power to teach and inspire us, and that is a gift. Instill a love of books from a young age, and read with your child.
#8. Sleep. A good night's rest for everyone in the family is often what many parents are thankful for; we understand!   
#9. Family Meals. Eating at least three family meals together each week is associated with healthier kids. Give thanks each time you are able to sit down, talk, and eat together; not just on Thanksgiving.  
#10. Healthy Children. Here's a no brainer, right? By visiting HealthyChildren.org, you know a reliable and trusted source when you see one. You've got this, and we appreciate your support!
