Writing thank-you notes is an important skill. See how to help your kids say "thanks" the right way.
It's really important to teach your child how to express gratitude in a meaningful way. Showing that we mean it is very important. One of the best ways to teach your child how to express gratitude is through a simple thank-you note. If your child doesn't know how to write yet, he or she can just draw up a thank-you note. A thank-you note doesn't necessarily have to be long, but help your child understand how much fun it is to receive a thank-you note in the mail. Make sending the note a really enjoyable activity for your child at home. Write it out, draw it out, fold it properly, seal the envelope, put the stamp on it, and that's it.
