If you are a parent and… every day is Thanksgiving

Awesome Book of Thanks

As parents we often exhaust ourselves prodding our kids to use their manners:

“Remember to say please.”

“How do you ask nicely?”

“What’s the magic word?”

“What do you say now?”

We want them to be polite, appreciative, socially appropriate beings, and sometimes forcing them to use manners doesn’t feel like the most effective or authentic way to do it.
