December 26th is National Thank You Note Day. It is the perfect opportunity for you to show your children to be grateful for the gifts they received this year from loved ones, whether those gifts were store-bought presents or simple presents. Follow these steps to write a quality thank you note.
1. Write It by Hand
While texting and emailing can be good for many things, there is something about a handwritten thank you note that makes it really special. Have them take the time to get out their favorite pen and invest in some fine stationery or a colorful card to compose their thanks on.
2. Start with a Greeting
Before getting into how grateful they are in their note, have them take a moment to send their good wishes to the recipient regarding their health and happiness. If you can have your children comment on a recent event in their life or ask about how a particular endeavor of theirs is going, those are also polite ways to begin a conversation and preface your thanks.
3. Thank Them Sincerely
The most important part of a thank you note is that it should feel genuine. Acknowledge the time and effort behind their generosity. Have your kids speak from your heart and let them know how they have made a difference in their life.
