Writing Thank You Cards

We often forget the value in writing thank you cards. Electronic communication has made a written thank you letters almost obsolete. Many people no longer see the value in writing a quick note of thanks and some don’t even take the time to drop a quick sms or email, even if it’s late it’s “better than never”. Children need to be reminded of their value and encouraged to write them.
