This optimistic attitude gives teenagers hope of a bright future and boosts academic performance. Not only that, it improves their self-esteem and keeps depression at bay.

"Gratefulness allows us to understand what matters most to us and translate that to a broader goal," researchers said.

Parents have an important role to play in helping teens understand the importance of satisfaction and contentment in life and the best way to instill this attitude in children is to lead by example.
