Thank You Notes

The act of writing thank you notes used to be an expected responsibility. This act, however, has been stressed less and less as the years have gone by. For parents that still believe in the importance of a personalized, handwritten or handmade note of thanks, getting their child in the habit at a young age is easier than ever. New products, and less formal traditions, have made note writing and sending a cinch for even the youngest of children. Use the following tips and guidelines to make thank you note sending a fun and valuable habit for your kids.

• Make note writing an event. Instead of making it seem like a chore, make it a fun and exciting time by scheduling into your day and talking about it in an upbeat manner before the time arrives. If children view the job as something that is fun to do, they will be less likely to develop resentment towards it.

• Make note writing a family affair. Unless it was a birthday, then most likely everyone received a gift. If so, have everyone sit down together to write his or her thank you notes. Center the event on a party atmosphere and your kids are likely to look forward to it. Plus, it will give you the chance to teach by example as they see you writing out your thank you notes. This lesson will teach children the importance of thank you notes and let them see the respect and appreciation that goes into them.

• Use kid-friendly supplies. Who says a thank you note must be preprinted or even white. Let your kids pick out cool paper, fun stickers and even colored markers or pencils. The more creativity they get to use, the happy they will be to do it.

• Use photos of your child in the card. Kids love to be the center attention, and people love to see the reactions of kids when they open up gifts. Let your child's photo do double duty by trimming down the picture and letting your child use it in the card design.

• Help your children if they need it, but don't push. If your child is stuck for something to say, feel free to help them out is they ask. But unless they ask, it is best to let them use their own words.

• Let go of unusually high standards. There is no law that states that all thank you notes must contain perfect grammar and penmanship. Unless your child asks for your help, it is better to let misspellings and incomplete sentences slide. If note writing starts to feel more like homework than fun, your children will be less likely to do it.

• Praise your child's effort. No matter how the card or note turns out, praise their work and let them know how excited you are that they made a personalized card for the present giver. Feelings of accomplishment always want to be repeated.

If your child is still reluctant to write thank you cards no matter how fun you try to make it, stick to your principles. While you may not ever get them to enjoy the process, you still need to stress how important it is and why it matters. If you can’t get them to see why it matters for their own benefit, at least try to get them to understand how important it is to the person who receives it.
