Thank You Notes

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.
