Thank You Notes
Photo: Ann- Kathrin Rehse
Do your kids say "no thanks" to writing thank you notes?
Let them telephone their message.
Tell them they don’t have to like the gift, they just have to say thanks.
Look for opportunities to send and give thank you notes to your children.
Help them send a thank you via e-mail.
Buy fun notepaper.
Write your own thank you notes and letters while they do theirs.
Don’t correct what they write.
Let them make their own notepaper or draw a picture.
Buy some printed thank you cards and then just let them sign their name.
Make a family rule that thank you notes or calls are given within three days.
Find a way that works for you and your family. There is generally more than one way to accomplish a task.
