GOLDEN RULES FOR NIECES AND NEPHEWS
- Don't assume that you are the most important thing in your aunt's life.
- A Thank-You letter or message -- by telephone or e-mail, if not by mail -- is due for every gift or outing.
- Remember your aunt's birthday, as she remembers yours.
- Keep in mind that she's getting old, but don't remind her of it.
- Tease her as much as you like, but don't call her "aunt" or "auntie" if she really doesn't like it.
- Keep in touch
