The gifts have been opened and the bows and paper throw away.
Now you have a list of presents and friends and relatives who sent them. It’s time to write thank you notes.
My son isn’t 2 yet, so I’ll be writing his notes and mine again this year, but it won’t be long before he can at least contribute to and soon pen his own thank you notes.
I have so far stuck with what I was taught as a child, to pull out the note paper and write thank you notes, but it’s almost 2013 and the electronic age has given us so many more ways to communicate, a landline, a cell phone, texting, Skype, Facetime, email and more.
Do you let your children email thank you notes or do you make them handwrite them? Do you think thank you notes are a thing of the past or maybe they’re even more important now when family and friends can be so spread apart. Share your thoughts in the comments below.
