OT: Graduation Thank you notes

My son is leaving for Army Reserves basic training on Tuesday. He has yet to do thank you notes for the gifts he received for graduating high school. Would it be ok if I have him sign the cards and I write in the actual notes to each person? The notes would never get done otherwise. -- Anggie

    <FONT face="comic sans ms" color="#007f40" size="3">If he is too busy to write them, he needs to return the gifts. It is just rude. I had to nag my son to write his, but it doesn't take long. Children/young adults need to know how important this is. It is a habit that should be life-long. I have 3 people on my 'list in my head' who did not thank me for gifts and they will never get another one. They were a baby gift, a graduation gift and a wedding gift.

    <div style="font-family:lucida console,sans-serif;font-size:14pt;"><div style="font-family: lucida console,sans-serif;font-size: 14pt;">I'm sorry, I just think it's crazy. If you actually have to get a card that says thank you in order to give another gift then it's not worth receiving one from you. I never ever do this to another person. Yes it's great to receive a thank you, yes it's rude of the other person. I don't give a gift expecting anything at all in return, to do so in my opinion defeats the purpose of giving. In today's world things get so hectic and crazy I know I don't write a thank you to every single thing I receive. I trust the gift was given out of love and say thank you to the person at the next opportunity. I was never taught to send a thank you, my mother also believed it needed to be a genuine sentiment, not a
    required one.

    Does he ever sit and watch tv? If so, set the cards, envelopes, ink

    pen, everything he needs in a small container and have it by where he

    watches tv. Tell him it sure would be nice if he could get the cards

    done during commercial time. I know I get a lot of stuff done around

    here during commercial time.

    Sweet heart your son is going in to the army reserves and I am sure

    thank you notes are the last thing on his mind even if you remind him

    every 15 min until he leaves. I am not trying to sound rude or snappy

    I just know it a lot to think about, my husband is in the navy and

    before he goes away he is a complete space cadet

    I agree that it should be a nice sentiment to send a thank you. I

    always take circumstances into consideration as well. For instance,

    this young man is about to head off to basic training. That is thanks

    enough for what he is giving of himself.



    On the other hand, I just sent a graduation card with money to my

    graduating family member. I was informed by my grandmother that this

    person will not be sending out thank you's as she is too self-centered

    and busy with her social life this summer. That disgusts me!
