No, but my husband keeps doing this. Ugh, don't make threat I know you aren't going to carry though on.

Yep...I call Santa on the phone and tell him Christmas is cancelled and to not bring any presents if they don't start behaving.

No. I only threaten things I would actually follow through with. My kids will always have a gift.

 Nope, I've never used Christmas as a bargaining tool.

no, but when my 5 year old stumbled upon a hidden gift yesterday (and she had no business in my closet anyway), I let her know that if she told her sister (3) what I got her, then I would take one of the 5 year old's presents back.  funny, I haven't heard a word about a magna doodle at all.  :)

Lol!!

No I don't. Kids need consistent discipline, not here and there since it's that time of the year crap.
