- June 27, 2008 at 11:37 pm #258997I agree it should, I just won’t make my kids do it. All I was trying to say was it’s nice, but it’s not worth getting upset about. Sometimes things happen and stuff goes undone and it’s not always a deliberate rudeness.
I tried for awhile with my boys and the fighting was horrible and I told them if they can’t be grateful then they can go without, and they can explain their rudeness. When they didn’t get as many gifts this past year I looked at them and used their term “duh!”. I don’t lie for them about it either.
I also mentioned before that personally I prefer just a thank you while I’m on the phone or if I’ve given the gift in person that’s enough for me, and for better or for worse that’s how I was raised.
I will also gladly accept an internet card in place of a physical one. For me I like to keep those kinds of things so it’s easier to put it in a folder on my computer than to physically store it in my home. (I’ve very limited storage.) I try to give the benefit of the doubt, and try not to let my feelings get hurt.

Subject: Budget101.com : Gaduation Thank you notes
I know that I am not that old, no offence to ANYONE. But I feel that a note should be sent. My daughter is 11 and sat down without being told and wrote all her notes for the gifts rcved for her birthday.
I feel that this is an important lesson for kids to learn.
