Children benefit from writing cards: thank you cards, holiday cards, get well soon, etc… According to Circle of Moms, “The practice of writing these notes helps kids develop critical social skills that are essential to maintaining strong relationships.”
Developing the habit of sending cards can be challenging. I wanted my son to know, and feel, the importance of writing cards. In our home, we create a calendar with our family and close friends birthdays, anniversary’s and special events. We spend a week or two creating art for the card. The first week of each month, we send out everyone’s cards for that month. I learned it was easier to focus on sending things during the month instead of trying to mail it for the exact date. Now, my 5 year old son has special relationships with family he has not yet met.
When sending an email, giving a verbal thank you or even a text message is easier or seems sufficient, the act of writing a heartfelt card is becoming a lost art. “Perhaps the most important benefits are that it helps kids to think about someone else’s feelings while developing a habit of thankfulness.” Proverbs 31 Woman
