So my so called bff of 25 yrs has a daughter that is having a baby...I drop off a gift to my friend to give to her daughter. Actually it was a large box filled with various items that will be nice for the new baby.
10 days have gone by, no email or phone call to tell me she got the gift, maybe opened it, maybe liked the items...
In the past I have given other gifts to young moms, and always get generous because baby stuff is fun to buy. And not one mom has ever said "Thank you"! not even my step daughter will say "Thank you".
I give up on buying gifts, I really do!!
I am only posting this in just for fun because there isn't a "venting" option
Are "Thank You's" a thing of the past?

While I do think that people need to say thank you, you are also "expecting" something in return that should have come from your heart. It is nice to be appreciated but don't give someone a gift just so you will get a thank you. Do it because you want to whether you will get a thank you or not.

its just plain common courtesy to me to say thank you and send a thank you card when someone gives DS or I a gift BUT a lot of young people don't do that kind of thing. Im 26 and i still do and i will teach my DS to do so.

Next question overall
Is it good parenting to brag about how much your child hits other kids?
