tell him that your supposed to say thanks when your reciving a gift.

Emelio is right. If we don't teach them, noone else will. Don't worry about how you sound. Your a loving grandma taking the responcibility to teach him.Smile

I looked up and saw the world and wondered....

Grandparent, you could hug them tight & tell them ,it is a common thing for someone to say thanks for a gift,no matter the price. We all know that the way it is given is the thought is what counts. If you gave a little, R lots. we are to be grateful for all gifts. Sorry for you if you don't get the answer you are looking for. I would tell them tho to say thanks even if they get mad. They will get over it ,because they will want more. Smile

Just say, "I love you and I know you already know this, so I'm only going to say it once. When I or anyone else gives you a gift, I expect you to say 'thank you.' If you forget to say thank you, people are likely to forget to give gifts - including me."

That's plain, to the point and enough of a reminder for a teen. If he doesn't take the hint, then follow through with the final point - no gifts in the future.

I agree with emelio, let the grand child know you are supposed to thank the person for  the gift, no matter who it is from. It is called manners which is lacking in this world so very much.
