My 5 year old is crying and throwing a temper tantrum since I wrapped Christmas presents last night. I held off wrapping his presents, but he started to cry since there were no presents under tree. Alas, when I when I wrapped a couple, he can't seem to control his emotions. He stomps around stating that it's not fair. We try to explain that everyone has to wait for Jesus's Birthday and show a calendar of the days, but doesn't help.
Any ideas of how to help him to be patient?

taking them away won't fix the problem. my kids try to even touch the presents, i tell them they're going to go to their friends and they won't get to even see what's in the wrapping paper. that's kept them away. kinda. i have to remind them if i even see the thought on their faces to touch them lol. they're 2 and 3 btw.
if you want to go get that ornament that counts down the days till christmas ( i saw it on a commercial) that might help...
