Review: When You Say" Thank You," Mean It By Mary ODonohue

When You Say "Thank You," Mean It: And 11 Other Reasons for Installing Lifelong Values in Your Children.

Everyone wants their children to be happy, responsible, and well adjusted, but there's no rulebook to teach parents how to do so--until now.

In this book, you'll learn how Mary O'Donohue, a proud mother of two, developed a practical program that allows parents to instill timeless values in their children over the course of one year. Focusing on one key value a month, the whole family can learn together through twelve fun and family-friendly activities, including:

Keeping a Gratitude Board

Creating Respect Tiles

Making a Compassion in Action Calendar

Hosting an Earning for Learning Gameshow

Starting a Life Map

By inspiring common values such as lifelong learning, a sense of joy, and respect for others, this unique guide offers purposeful advice for raising joyful, thoughtful children--who will make their world a better one to live in.

My son just started Preschool last month and we had a parent teacher conference and she was telling my how polite my son was saying thank you, please and your welcome. Of course I said thank you for saying that but she said I don't think you understand I've been a teacher for 5 years and only heard that with 2 students. I was shocked how many children grow up without knowing common values. This was a excellent book and I hope others enjoy it as well.
