Don’t overlook your kids’ daily thoughtful deeds. Be sure to tell a child what they did that you appreciate so they are more likely to copy your example and send their own “appreciation messages” to others. A hard lesson for kids to learn is that they are really thanking the person not for the gift but the thoughtfulness behind it.
