There also might be some help in asking for a visit from someone from the local food bank or homeless shelter.

The thing is, learning to express thanks needs to start early and at home. Unfortunately, that might be something missing in their lives.

One thing I did was after Christmas vacation I did a writing lesson on writing thank you notes to someone who gave them a gift: relative, friend, Santa (if age appropriate), me if they were really stuck since I always gave each a book. The letter included something about how much they liked the present, what they would do with it, something about how it made the giver special or memorable.

I always explained, truthfully, that I'd stopped sending my nieces and nephew presents because I never even knew if they got the presents because I never had a thank you, not a phone call or a letter (no texting back then).
