Zen Mommy Minute: Teaching “Thank you!” to your kids!

What do you do if someone gives your child a gift and your child forgets to say thank you? Do you say the classic all-be-it a little tired, “What do you saaay?” only to see your child deflatedly oblidge you and give it up in a sing-songy, nearly robotic voice, “Thaaaaaaak youuuuuu.”

Is there another way? Watch this idea and what we do in our home. I’d love your thoughts… what do you do? And is it working?
