Letter writing/Thank you notes
A fun December Activity (or any other time)
I do this activity as we near the season of giving.
In the season for thanks and giving, even the most thoughtful children may not offer much gratitude for the gadgets, gizmos, and games they receive. And you’d be wise not expect it, if they have not been taught gratitude.
Children should know to say thank you (profusely) to someone who gives them something.
There is no greater telltale sign of good manners than responding properly to receiving a gift. Even as adults we often find ourselves in some situations where we just do not know how to respond or react.
It is not enough to give a lackluster "Thanks" as we excitedly take hold of the present, then take a quick glance at what is inside the paper and move onto the next box in the pile.
Receiving a gift requires a big dose of enthusiasm even when you don’t particularly love gift. Why? Simply because maybe up to the age of ten you could have been forgiven for that disappointed look, however after that point an ungrateful look can be considered rude.
Children need to realize that it is important to know that they are not entitled to gifts just because they exist. Just because it is their birthday they are not owed gifts. This would be wonderful if it was the case however unfortunately it is not.
