Santa left coal in my neighbor's daughter's stocking?!?!
My neighbors are raising a six year old brat, I admit it. But half the problem is them. Not only do they not discipline her, but they even laugh and encourage her behavior.
The year she woke up Christmas morning to find no presents under the tree. Instead, in her stocking was a letter from Santa. She didn't get any presents because she was bad this year. So she sat there, on Christmas morning and watched her brother open his gifts.
Instead of being parents and finding a way to discipline their child effectively, they took the heat off themselves and made Santa the bad guy. IMO this is horrible parenting. Not only is it traumatizing for a child, it will never work.
Oppinions mommas? Would you ever think of this?
