Getting Children To Say Thanks For Gifts

By Dan Coulter I still wince at the memory of a childhood Christmas where I hurt my mother with a lack of gratitude. I’d asked for a pair of walkie talkees from the Montgomery Ward catalog. When I opened my present, I found a different brand of walkie talkies from Sears. They were bigger and not as cool looking. I looked up at my mother and said, “Couldn’t you have gotten them from Wards?” The joy drained from my mother’s face, and I felt wretched as she explained I needed to be grateful for what I was given. After recently being diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, I can forgive my childhood self a bit with the knowledge that blurting out what you’re thinking is a common Asperger trait. Luckil
