When was the last time your child sent a handwritten note to a friend or relative? With all the technology available today, this skill has fallen by the wayside. Christmas is a great time to do something special for a loved one. Help them send a card to someone. It will be greatly appreciated by the receiver. With the holidays coming up quickly, encourage them to send a thank you note to everyone they received a gift from. It should be a thoughtful way to acknowledge that you received the gift.
This isn’t a reminder just for kids. Adults have stopped doing this as well. It doesn’t take but a few minutes to do and is a very thoughtful thing to do and much more personal than an email or text message.
When was the last time you received a personal note? What did it mean to you?
