The Thank You Card

I send gifts to my son and daughter-in-law, but get no thank you cards in return. To me, this is very rude, and saddening. What do I say? -- Sad Susan

Dear Susan,

Your daughter-in-law may not know she's hurting your feelings.  Perhaps her upbringing didn't include thank you cards -- or perhaps she thinks a text message thank you suffices (personal aside:  *shudder).

Your daughter-in-law may not know she's hurting your feelings.  Perhaps her upbringing didn't include thank you cards.

Lead by example.  When your son and daughter-in-law do something nice for you -- anything in the near future -- mail them a nice thank you card just for that action.  Do this again and again.  Your daughter-in-law may think it's fun and cotton on.
