To go along with my other thread about what I feel is a general lack of consideration for your fellow human being nowadays-haha! let's talk about thank you notes . Do you get them? Do you send them? And, what I really want to know, do you have yours kids send them? Now that my younger son is in school, we spend lots of weekends going to birthday parties. We always bring a gift of course, and I have to say, only get thank you notes, cards, emails from about half the kids. What happened to ackowledging the fact that someone put thought and money into buying you something? I know parents have busy lives nowadays, I do too, but, are their lives so busy that they can't teach their children what I think is a very basic, very necessary part of being a considerate, non self centered human being? After my son's birthday party this December, every single person who sent or brought him a gift received a thank you note from him and, the gift was sepcifically mentioned too (ie: Thanks for the Scrabble Jr, I love word games). What is wrong with society??
