Mom wants to attach strings to treasured hand-me-downsBecause the outfits were expensive, as our children outgrew them, we passed them on to my sister-in-law.When my youngest daughter was born, I asked her about the dresses, and she informed me they were not her style so she had given them away.Once a gift is given, it becomes the property of the recipient to keep or dispose of.If someone did something “nice” for you, but it turned out to cause such a hassle that you didn’t appreciate the gesture, how do you politely tell the person not to do it again, or that you wish they hadn’t?Someone gives you a box of chocolates or cupcakes when you are trying to lose weight.Or, the babysitter folds all the clothes that were sitting in the laundry basket, but puts everything away in the wrong drawers.[...] you didn’t ask her to fold the laundry in the first place.Thank the person for the thoughtful gesture and explain that you are watching your diet, cannot have candy and won’t be able to for the foreseeable future.
