Children and a Greeting Card

21 Reasons To Send A Child A Greeting Card

When was the last time you saw the face of a child light up and glow because they got a piece of mail with their name on it? Children love to get mail. My children, even at 10 years of age, run to the door and ask if they got any mail today. It doesn't even matter if it is junk mail. They just like to get anything with their names on it. Of course, it means that much more if there is a special reason for the mail.

Sending Greeting Cards to Children

Sending letters or greeting cards is a good way to foster a love of communication and writing in children. In our society, instant messaging, text messaging, and short emails have all but killed the art of good communication. Studies indicate that the more a child reads, the smarter they are. However, it can often be difficult to get some children to read due to lack of interest. I bet there isn't a child around that wouldn't be interested in reading a card or letter addressed to them from someone they care about. And, of course, if a child is raised to expect that letters and greeting cards are a regular occurrence, they are more likely to become better communicators themselves.

So take some time and send a greeting card to a child in your life. Here are just a handful of reasons you can use to send a greeting card to a child you know and help to make their day that much brighter.

Reasons to send children a greeting card

1. They got an A on a test or report card. Make the joy of doing well last just a little longer.

2. They said, "Please".

3. It's their birthday, Valentine's Day, Easter, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, etc:

4. They were well-behaved.

5. They did something special for someone (even if it wasn't you). It helps to foster the trait of good will when they get some feedback for what they have done.

6. They helped with dinner.

7. Just to say, "I appreciate you". Do they really know how valuable they are to you?

8. They said, "Thank you".

9. Just to say, "You're Special".

10. They did a great job on their chores. Rewards for a job well done encourage more of the same.

11. Because you haven't seen them and want them to know you miss them.

12. Say thanks for being my ...(son, daughter, grandchild, niece, nephew, friend, etc:).

13. They made the honor roll.

14. They helped in the yard.

15. Remind them of an exciting event that is coming up.

16. Remind them of a neat experience you had together.
