I agree they should want to do it and not get rewarded. Maybe in every situation that is an obvious blessing if you point it out and say 'oh thank God for this because without it x, y, z ' and then say we should give thanks. Maybe they will really realize oh that was a blessing and if God hadn't given this to us then we wouldn't be able to go here or do this or have this pleasure... it may be a way to help them feel thankful.
